Ralph kindly conducted spiritually-uplifting, funeral services for our aged parents, a week apart, although he had not known either of them. We hope he will now get to know them.

Dear Lois, Penne, Tim, and Doug, How grateful I am for the godly influence of your husband and dad in my life during my high school years. His tremendous love for God was so evident during his time as Youth Pastor in C.R. He walked with God in such a way as to truly model the difference the presence of Christ can make for one who chooses to follow him. Sweet memories invade my mind and heart as I recall his visit to Ca which included a tour of where I was attending college, dinner conversation with news from home, joyous break from the studies with a day at Disneyland culminating in where I was in my walk with God since entering college. Your precious family member touched my life with the fingerprints of God, and forever I am grateful. By the way, Lois, you did also and I remembered our most recent together time several years ago when I think of being with you both seeing the floats. Here was a man (and a woman) who chose to show others what a relationship with Christ looks like. With Love and Prayers to you all, Cheri

When I was hired for my first Pastor's position, Ralph met with me to encourage and offer support through my first year. In the years following, he would often offer a word of caring guidance. He loved the church and was dedicated to make it an institution that brought Grace and Light to our communities and neighborhoods. He was bold, never shying away from God's calling for the church, even when others disagreed or criticized. He showed me what it meant for a pastor to focus on pleasing God and not men. He has influenced me. I am grateful for him. God, thank you for this gift.
