In Memory

We have just learned that Ralph died in July 2015 and regrettably have little information about the sad event. He played freshman football, received his ’49 numerals and served on the Olio and the HMC. He joined Kappa Theta and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa as a senior. We believe that he had military service from 1943 to 1946 and after college earned an M.B.A. at Harvard.

He joined the family company and spent most of his life in the New Haven area. He was married in 1951 and had two children and one granddaughter. His wife, Isabelle, predeceased him.

He died in the Connecticut Hospice in Branford from complications of Alzheimer’s disease. We are endeavoring to gather more information about Ralph, who was age 90 and living in Woodbridge, Conn., prior to his illness.
