Ralph was the best Quarterback hitting those sideline passes near the sidewalk on the street or those TD marches down the field at Neilson park. He was always upbeat and had a friendly word to pass on. We were very lucky to have great neighbours like the Emersons as we shared many experiences together. Ralph will be missed both as a person, and as one of the street icons on a very special street known as Stevenharris Drive. You ran a great race Ralph. Our Prayers go out to Brad and David and their families in this time of great loss.

One of a kind! Enjoyed life to the fullest. Taught us to bring a second short to a function. Proud of his family, and fun to be around. Left me with one of the best lines ever when he first retired from Ontario Hydro when I asked how retirement was going he said "Great, my pension is earning me $40k/yr and I'm spending $50k" !

We had many years of fun baseball with Hydro and a couple beers after the games.
Not many balls could get by Ralph on 3rd base with that historic relic of a glove he used. RIP Ralph
