    I am so sorry to hear of our Families lose, I hadn’t saw him in awhile and we pretty much just met passing over the years. But he was/is my first cousin and he will be missed

    My condolences to Ralph’s family. My favorite memory with Ralph will always be the day we went fishing on the Arkansas river and I caught 2 catfish and Ralph didn’t catch anything. I will never forget his laugh or the grief he gave me for out fishing him that day. I am very blessed to have known such a kind hearted man and I will never forget you! Rest in peace and I’ll see you again!

    I just found out this morning of Chris’s passing. I am so very sorry for your loss. Chris loved being outside in nature. I remember all our fishing trips and one time in particular when we were fishing at Lincoln Lake and I caught a 3 pound bass right at dark. The funny thing is he had taken off the worm I had on my pole and put it on his pole, he had been fishing with it for a long time with no luck when I finally noticed I made him put it back on my pole then I caught that bass…he was so mad…. and we laughed and laughed about that later. He had a kind heart. He will be missed.

    Thank you everybody for your love. Debra, I’m happy to see you were made aware of his passing. I didn’t know how to get ahold of you and I knew you’d want to know :)

    I am so sorry for your loss may God be with you in the time of your grief.
    I am first cousin to Chris, Willard was my uncle, and I knew Shirley when Chris as a baby.

    So many stories to tell about this great friend. He cared about other people more than anyone I have ever met, and was such a talented man. He is deeply missed by many.
    He wasn’t just a friend, but my brother.
