September 10, 1957 - October 22, 2021
Gary L. Ralph, lifelong resident of Yaphank, New York passed away peacefully on October 22, 2021. Gary was born to Betty and Everett “Howard” Ralph in Yaphank, NY. After graduating from Longwood High School in 1976, he went on to work for Suffolk County Parks Department, where his rise to fame began. He landed the job as Beach EMT for Suffolk County. He was an amazing first responder and friend to many. In 1986, he met Kelly Redmond, and they wed in 1988 and had two children, Meaghan and Heather. Solidifying his star on the walk of fame he worked for The Town of Brookhaven as the Ambulance District Coordinator. He worked tirelessly to give the Medford, Brookhaven and Mastic Ambulance Companies their headquarters. Gary was a force of nature, determined to provide for his family and give them the life he felt they deserved. His family meant more to him than anything else in the world, something he often mentioned. He was unendingly proud of Meaghan, Heather, and Kelly and always tried his best to support them. Gary was a dedicated lifelong member of the Yaphank Presbyterian Church. If he wasn’t at home he could often be found hanging out with Davey supervising whatever event was happening. Anyone who knew Gary knew that he had a huge heart and would do anything to help. Gary is survived by his beloved wife Kelly Ralph and their children; daughter Heather Sheridan and son-in-law Bobby, daughter Meaghan Ralph and fiance Lorenzo. He is also survived by three cherished grandchildren; Jack, Briggs and Bobbi Sheridan as well as his dear nieces and nephew; Courtney, Ashley and Ryan and his great nephew Bryce. He will be forever loved and missed. The family requests that in lieu of flowers please make a donation to Yaphank Presbyterian Church.
