He graduated from Wilbur Cross High School and worked at the Coca-Cola Company for 49 years, proudly retiring in 2015. Ralph was a hard worker often balancing 2 jobs, and was an avid collector of all things Coca-Cola. He enjoyed going out to eat, playing cards with friends and listening to the Oldies.
