Ralph was a wonderful friend that I first met in the early 1950's. I severed with him in the US Army in 1962. Ralph was honest, hard working, and loyal. When dealing with Ralph, all you needed was a handshake, no written or signed contract. His word was his bond.

Our love and prays to the family. C Garland

Mr. Anguiano was my Mother's classmate in Bennett, Texas. They were lifelong friends. A month after her passing, he saw me in the grocery store. He asked how I was coping and if he could hug me. I thanked him for his sympathies and he said he hoped after he passed away his friends would hug his children. ((Hugs))

I had the pleasure of taking care of Mr. Ralph while he was in the hospital, quite a few times. Every day that I saw that I was taking care of him, my heart swelled. I enjoyed each moment that I was able to care for him. I was able to gain relationships with his family and I cared deeply for them, as well. I got attached to Mr. Ralph, and was so saddened to hear about his passing, but also happy that he was not hurting anymore and was free. I will forever carry his love, strength and faith with me. #AnguianoStrong

Ralph ( we called him "Wolf"), Kenneth Stephens (deceased) and myself use to run together some and were in the Guard together. I had tried to contact him a time or two in the last few years but could not connect. I have many fond memories of our adventures and regret to hear of his passing. I know he will be missed.
