In Loving Memory of
Obituary of Ralph ManleyManley, Ralph
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Ralph, on Monday, May 6, 2019 at the Greater Niagara General Hospital, at the age of 81. Ralph will be lovingly remembered and missed by his children, Christine (Robert) DiGioia, David Manley and Cathy Manley (Darryl Vitone). Proud Papa of Carly Pierce, Sarah DiGioia and Julian DiGioia. Dear brother of Russell (Patt) Manley of California, and special friend of John and Jeannie Harbor. Ralph was predeceased by his parents, William and Beatrice Manley and by his siblings, Arthur, Jean, and Robert.
A huge fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs, Toronto Blue Jays, and NASCAR, Ralph spent many years following his favourite sport teams. He also enjoyed listening to country music and was a devout follower of the band Alabama (he even joined their fan club!). Ralph dedicated over 35 years to Brights Wines in Niagara Falls. He will be remembered for being a handyman and for his ability to be independent for many years, despite losing his vision. A special thank you to the nurses and doctors of the ICU and Chaplin Terry, for their compassionate care and spiritual support.
