Ralph J Hosford
September 10, 1937 - April 27, 2019
Ralph was a very loving and devoted husband to his wife, Sadie for 55 years before her passing in 2014. He was a loving and devoted father as well as a grandfather and great-grandfather. There was nothing in this world that was more important to him than his family. He loved spending as much time as he could with "his girls" and "his great-grands". He loved watching them grow and making as many memories, home movies and taking as many pictures as possible. He never wanted to let a great moment pass without a keepsake of that exact moment. Ralph was a great man and kind to everyone he met. He was a man who always found new hobbies to keep himself busy with, but the one hobby that he never stopped doing was photography. He loved to take pictures! He was a very selfless man and he always let "his girls" know how much he loved them. Ralph is a Papaw that will be missed beyond measure...

He was preceded in death by his wife (Sadie A Hosford), his mother (Nellie L Hosford), his father (William M Hosford), his sons (Ralph J Hosford Jr)(Raymond "Lester" Hosford), and all of his brothers and his sister.
