Ralph Breedlove was best known as a family man because to Ralph, everyone was family. Ralph was the epitome of commitment and loyalty. He was a husband first and foremost which was displayed through his undying devotion to his sweetheart of 40 years, Joan. Theirs is a love story that will span through eternity.
Ralph was a devoted and loving father and grandfather. He never missed an opportunity to tell each child he loved them whenever they saw him. He was the biggest cheerleader and the greatest listener. He cultivated a spirit of adventure, creativity, and inspired thousands to reach for their dreams. Ralph loved his God, his country, his friends and his family. He was compassionate. He gave to the needy, the less-fortunate, and the down trodden even if he had nothing himself. He would give everything that he had, including the jacket off his own back. Ralph was the greatest story teller. He experienced more adventures than any ten men combined.
