The best father in law you could ever ask for! He loved his Huskers, his family and all those grandkids! He honorably served our country. We celebrate his wonderful life!

If you know Ralph's children, you would know the amazing man Ralph was. Those wonderful and successful kids and their offspring didn't fall far from the tree he and Thelma grew to nourish them all. Well done, God's good and faithful servant!
