He was predeceased by his parents Peter (Micky) & Mary, brothers Blair, Wayne; sister Lorraine.
He was the last traditional hereditary Chief at Cote First Nation. Ralph was a traditional man and cherished the culture of his people. He loved to hunt and provide for his family. He preserved traditions and teachings by passing them on to his children using stories and the oral tradition. Ralph had a great sense of humour, always the trickster and was equally caring and loving of his wife, children and all he met.
Sleep easy husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend.
