Ralph Crowe, made it to 92 years old, one year shy of his goal to beat his brother of 93. Can't win them all, but you can sure try. Yes, him and his second wife Elsie were gamblers, together they are now pulling that golden arm bandit high in the sky! Smiling, holding hands and laughing together once again. He and his first wife, Hazel raised 4 children, when she passed Ralph married Elsie. Daddy never met a stranger, but he knew how to flatten out the bad people. He was the person that you could depend on, he would be there in a flash. Ralph worked at Delco, Dayton, Ohio where he was a grinder and proud to be a shop committee man for the people. After Elsie passed he wanted to move back to his roots in Kentucky. A piece of land with a large pond, he saw his next dream complete with the "Green Acres" home. He was in the United States Army, bump stocking that guy behind him stepping on his boots.
Ralph would have liked for all that knew him to stop by and say their goodbyes to him. A graveside service will be held at 2pm on Thursday, April 22, 2021 at Woodland Cemetery, 281 Dayton Avenue, Xenia, Ohio 45385.
In lieu of flowers, please do something nice for a stranger, this is what Ralph would have liked, bringing others together.
