Ralph was our very Favorite neighbor for 45 years. We will always remember Ralph’s laugh, which he often did. He always there for others, and he was our Favorite GHOST at Halloween! We were so jealous of he and Lisa stopping at the Pine Club for martinis after work! The Boss (Dwight) would invite the Chief over for a BB game, which never happened! The memories we have will live in our hearts 💕 forever!! Big hugs and our love to Ralph Jr., Carolyn, Lisa, and Nancy and families. Hope our 21 photos of memories preceded this!
we love 💕 you,
Sally & Dwight

My heartfelt condolences to the wonderful family members of Ralph. He was a great man and an inspiration to many! Ralph & wife Lisa were nextdoor neighbors to my twin sister. Sally, and husband Dwight for many years in Oakwood; and that is how I got lucky enough
to know the Richter family! Ralph will be greatly missed! God Bless all the family!
