Ralph worked in the trucking industry for many years. He could also operate any piece of construction equipment he needed to. The best stories he ever told were of the hauls he had with his dearest friend, Chris Chewning.

The smaller treasures in his life were his six grandchildren, Rocky, Jamison, and Ryder Giannetti, and Brayden, Addalyn, and Liam Sexton; and nieces Tammy and Edna Taylor, and Kaitlyn, Lauryn, and Mckena Coleman.

Those who remain to mourn his passing include the love of his life and wife, Mary Coleman; mother Roberta Coleman; mother-in-law LaDonna Tatum; brothers Clarence (Irene), Charlie, and Lesley (Nikki); and other relatives and friends.

He was preceded in death by his father, Clarence Coleman; and step-son Steven E. Sexton.

A service will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 7, 2022 at Covenant Funeral Service, Fredericksburg with Wildon Terrell from the Thornburg congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses officiating. Interment will follow in Sunset Memorial Gardens.
