Ralph graduated from Jefferson High School, attended Lees McRay College and served in the United States Army. He lived for many years in Kingsport, TN, where he operated his own business and worked in real estate. After making Ashe County his home again, he engaged full time in his hobby of trading antiques, watches, and glassware.
