Killed by gun August 12, 1998, at age 36

Ralph was a devoted father of three children who were engaged to be married, and he always tried to take care of them. He was a sincere church-goer, 8:30 service every Sunday morning, and was trying to get his life in order.

His hobbies were skating, working on and putting old cars together, and playing all sports. He belonged to a car club. And he loved all his friends, believing they would never do any harm, he was always there when they needed him.

He finished Gardena High, took courses at Southwest College, and had enrolled in a trade school, taking a “Hasmatt” course. He never wanted to say no to anyone, always gave a helping hand.

God bless you son, we all love and miss you very much.

Love, Mother
