  1. For all of Ralph’s family:
    We are very saddened to hear of Uncle Ralph’s passing. Always such an integral part of the Hitz ‘clan’ – he’ll be missed!

  2. It is with much Love and affection that I mourn the passing of Uncle Ralph. The memories of those younger days when as children we would visit and spend time laughing over some stupid thing us kids most likely did. I never remember Uncle Ralph raising his voice to us no matter what mischief we managed to get into. He will be missed with great affection. Peggy

  3. My prayers go out to the Hitz Family, He is in a good place now.
