Jehovah with all his heart. In his ministry he was well known for his gift of gab and
his tremendous humor, captivating his audience with his passion for the Bible. He
frequently spoke about the coming resurrection, which he firmly believed in.
He was very skilled and could do anything from mounting a piece of trim, to building
a garage. He loved working with his hands, and frequently was sought after for
carpentry advice. Always he would provide the same with more than a hint of humor.
In a family environment, he was like a magnet to children. Looking at pictures or
videos of Ralph, it is rare to see him without his grandchildren around him. Even
grown up, they went to him for entertainment. He would share interesting stories of
the past and have his audience in laughter.

friends. He is predeceased by his daughter Tracey Sonnenfeld, and others.
