Ralphie was loved by everyone, especially the younger members of the family. His great niece, and best buddy, Amiyah insisted on accompanying him to doctor’s visits holding his hand and making sure he followed doctor’s instructions. His passion was playing cards, as he was a card dealer in his prime. He looked forward to Saturday Poker Nights with the family. He always was ready for hamburger night on Tuesdays and Steak nights on Fridays at the VFW. His joking manner brought joy to his family and friends alike and he left many good memories with all. He will be sadly missed by his family and all who knew him. We would like thank UTMB staff in the SICU, especially his nurse, Hanna, for their loving care which made Ralphie’s final journey on earth to his heavenly home as peaceful and respectful as it was.
