Ralph ran a front-end loader and retired after more than 20 years working for Dowlen's Sawmill and more than 30 years, previously, at Hinkle Chair Company.

    Ralph was a good man and a very hard worker. I will miss him a lot and so will the others who worked with him at Hinkle Chair Company, I worked with him for years and he was always a happy go lucky person. I will keep all of you in my prayers.
