Here are some special memories shared by family and friends.
We've had so many wonderful times together, I don't know where to start. From vacations down in Atlantic City to high-intensity softball games, to just sitting down and watching a movie together. You always had the TV blaring because you couldn't hear it. You always left crumbs on the kitchen counter. You said hello to the cats first thing when you walked through the door. You were crazy and stubborn and always had to have the last word, but you were you. You were our dad, our husband, our friend, and our family. We love you, Ralph. We always have and we always will, and that's a D'Onofrio promise.
Jessica & Muriel D'Onofrio
I remember growing up in Hudson Gardens with Ralph. Running around the court yards playing Football, Basketball, and Softball. We played games like Manhunt, Red Light Green Light, and all other types of games. Ralph was a little rough on us little guys. But I think it was to keep us in line. Always threatening to tell our mothers on us. Ralph was the last person I thought would ever have dated (never mind marry) one of my sisters. But, it happened. He married one of the best. Muriel AKA/ Teensie. I just want to say it is sad for such a young man to be taken from such a great family. My prayers are with you Teensie and Jessica. I've been there for you and always will be. Love always, JoJo

Ralph was a great guy growing up. We liked to play tennis in the old basketball court. Our net was the line from the halfway mark on the basketball court. I will miss him. My prayers for you Muriel and Jessica. He was very proud of his daughter. Always telling me about her games. RIP Ralph

Ralph was a good guy. A hard worker. And always talked about his wife and daughter. RIP Ralph
