Gary Kanofsky - 13 days ago

I am so, so sorry to have heard this news. There are certain people in this world who indelibly penetrate your heart, and Ralph had the magic. It's been 44 years since I first met him, and he remains an unforgettable character, seared in my mind! He was so funny (way before Larry David he had that kind of humor), he was so generous (I'll never forget the ultra-thin Seiko he shlepped back from Japan for me when they were rare indeed), and he was so spontaneous. Sitting around, on a school night, he'd say, "I feel like a steak, let's go to Schwartz'". And off we went - piled into that Seville he loved! He was shrewd, he was clear headed, he had a temper (I remember an explosion in Stowe involving grape juice!) but above all he was a love - and a lover of his family - slavishly devoted. It's impossible to not be deeply saddened by his loss, of course, but Ralph will leave all who knew him memories that provoke wistful chuckles and a melancholy smile. I know that's how I'll carry him in my thoughts, always. My love, and condolences, to all the family. Gary Kanofsky

Elliott Myers - 14 days ago

Dear Soryl and family, So sorry to hear about Ralph. He was one of my favourite parents' friends. Even as a young kid I enjoyed when he would come over: he always - and continued to have - a good joke. I remember him (probably at my parents' behest) trying to talk me out of getting a 10 speed bike when I was about 12 or so: what is the point, he said because by the time you got it into 10th gear you would already be there. Warm regards, Elliott

Bernie Shuster - 14 days ago

To the entire Young Family, How sad it is to hear of Ralph's passing. I worked with him some 65 years ago at Clay's Pharmacy. I saw him several times during the intervening years, and it was always a great pleasure to discuss those good old days. What is so interesting is those wonderful qualities he had as a young man remained constant throughout his entire life. Always ready with a smile, \a positive outlook, humble, and ready to be of help. May the family find consolation in the great memories they have. BDH.

Dear Sorel, Jennifer and Karen. I am heartbroken to have learned about the passing of dear Ralph. When I graduated Pharmacy School Ralph and Chuck granted me a partnership at Superpharm.
