I used to wait on Ralph when he came into the Pulaski County Clerks’ Office and he was a pleasure to have for a customer. So soft spoken and courteous always., a man of knowledge and understanding in his business and patience for our work. I am truly sorry for your loss but he has just gone home to be with his loved ones gone before him. You will see him again. God bless.

Our lives are forever changed with the loss of a wonderful, loving grandfather, great grandfather, father. “Pop’s” farm will never be the same~can’t imagine that farm without him or “”Nan”. One thing is for certain he is now reunited with the true love of his life, my dad Rick, John, Paul and Jason. The World’s loss is certainly Heaven’s gain. Forever loved and missed~My sweet Pop. ❤️ The end of a beautiful era.
