Ralph enjoyed being a restaurateur and managed the New Mexican Grill in Gilbert, AZ where he incorporated his family recipes into the menu of the daily freshly made dishes that created a dedicated following of loyal patrons.
He helped those who did not or could not get out by dropping off food, water, and other home needs, at their front door. He enjoyed and supported his employees who dearly miss him and his laughter.
