Ralph passed away earlier today. He was a great supporter of OSS and OJAM from our first event. He mentored many upcoming knappers and bow builders. Ralph will be missed by all who knew him.
Prayers to his wife Vickie and all his family.

Tommy, You a right. Ralph was a wonderful supporter, a Great Knapper, and a Great Friend. If you didn't put Ralph at the top of your list of Good Guys, it's because you never met him. Prayers for his family. He's probably figuring out if he can get a head out of a street of gold. RIP my Friend. :(

I put something on the BOD forum, but apparently no one has seen it. We need to send a flower to Ralph's Services and a card from the OSS. It would mean a lot to his family. As someone who's been there with loved ones, nothing means more that heartfelt concern from a close knit group that is your extended family, like OSS, KBA, or BCO. :campfire:

I read of his passing yesterday evening on Facebook after we got home from the races at Wichita. After a long day that was news that floored me.

As Ralph said, one of the good ones for sure that anyone would be glad to call friend.
