Ralph is a transmitter engineer for Family Life. He works in remote places and, just like Jim Travis, is sometimes responsible for bringing broken radio stations back on the air. Ralph is the son of a Baptist minister and was raised across New York State, mostly in the Central New York region. The youngest of three boys, he accepted Christ in his pre-teen days and has volunteered at church since he was a teenager.

Ralph got involved in radio station repair and maintenance while in college. He gave up his original plan of becoming a teacher, and instead made a career of fixing technology when it doesn’t work right. He joined Family Life in 1997 as the network started growing from 8 stations with just a handful of translators.
