A devoted Catholic, went home to Jesus on June 3, 2019. He passed peacefully at home with his cherished wife of 52 beautiful years, Nancy and beloved pup, Samantha. Ralph is the adored father of Natalie (James) Snyder and Brian (Dana Aulicino) Heil. He will remain in the hearts of “Pappy’s Precious Little Angels”, Olivia and Francesca Snyder, treasured granddaughter, Antoinette Heil, and his brother August Heil. Ralph served his country in the Army National Guard. He was a proud graduate of Pitt and the founder of Electro Dynamics, Inc. Ralph was loved by the many homeless who he and Nancy served for 32 years. A true gentleman with a smile to light any room and always a kind word. He was the kindest of souls, to say he will be missed would not do justice to a man, friend, husband, daddy, and pappy who was larger than life. The family will receive friends Wednesday, June 5th from 2-4 & 6-8 p.m. at the WEDDELL-AJAK FUNERAL HOME, 100 Center Avenue, Aspinwall. A Christian Funeral Mass will be held Thursday, 10 a.m. at St. Joseph Church, 342 Dorseyville Rd., O’Hara Twp.
