He was always keenly interested in his family, active in his church, involved with his communityand deeply aware of world issues. He loved to read, to discuss, to listen and to sing and he had an uncanny ability to be able to recall the perfect quote or poem for any occasion. He was conscientious, kind, considerate and he had a wonderful sense of humour. He was a true gentleman in every sense. Ralph is survived by Lorna, his loving wife of 68 years, his oldest son Brian (Danielle) of Mississauga, ON, daughter Linda (David) of Port Moody, BC and youngest son Dale (Lynn)of Saint John; seven grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.
