Hi I'm Ralph

I grew up and have lived in the western United States, Utah, Nevada, Colorado, Arizona. I am a father and grandpa. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband, father and grandfather. I was a one-time marathon runner and bicycle hobbyist. I am a college graduate. I currently work in the semiconductor industry (for the past 32 years!)

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in Utah as a member of the Church. I have a wonderful heritage of ancestors who sacrificed to join the church and came to America as a result. My wife and I were married in the temple which gives us incredible strength and purpose in our marriage. We are very blessed with children who have discovered the joy of the church and enjoy serving as well.

How I live my faith

I attend church weekly, even if away from my home. For example, I have found branches of the church in several areas of the world that my work has taken me. Last month I was able to attend a branch meeting in Jerusalem. I am also blessed to live nearby an LDS temple and am able to attend often. I often reflect upon the challenges of the world and think through ways that the gospel of Jesus Christ can help.
