Family and friends of Ralph Edward Childers mourn the death and celebrate the life of their beloved Husband, Father, Son, Brother and Friend. Ralph joined Jesus and heaven rejoiced on October 10, 2005 when he was welcomed to his eternal home.
Ralph was embraced in heaven by those who preceded him in death, his daughter Cydney Childers, son John Childers, and dear friend Sam Gamez. He joined his Father, Earl and mother, Edith Childers in heaven and for the first time met his birth father, Ralph Marmalejo.
Ralph leaves a void in the lives of those who loved him so much: his precious partner and wife, Edwina Childers, daughters and sons-in-law, Kristyn and Mike Rodriquez and Kimberly and Wade Earthman, his Son and best-friend, Josh, and Erin Childers, his grandchildren, Cydney and Tyler Childers and Alexis and Lake Earthman. His mother, Earline (Kitty) Dolman, his siblings, Iris, Lucky, and Ronnie Dolman, his sister and brother in-law Norma and Jack Jones and niece Karyn Ann Morosey also survive.
Ralph will be missed by the many McDonald's employees, customers and friends, especially his friend and boss, Dan Leasure. Ralph was proud of the work he did and of the store managers and people he managed over his 30-year career.
We will see Ralph in Heaven.
