"Ralph" memorial story revealed

LOOKING FOR RALPH: There is a memorial cross with the name “Ralph” on it at the gas substation on the south side of Hodgen Road between Herring and Bar X roads. Who is Ralph, and what happened?
- D. Johnson

ANSWER: Pat O’Steen knew Ralph and his story. “On June 27, 1992, Air Force Capt. Ralph Sandys and his wife, Roz, were on their way to a party in Black Forest when they came upon an accident and he had stopped in the rain to help get out kids trapped in a car. A drunk driver crested the hill and his vehicle was sliding. The vehicle hit Ralph and he was thrown into a barb wire fence. He was taken to Memorial Hospital and died there of internal injuries. Ralph’s parents have a metal fabricating shop, in Ohio I think, and the sign was made there. Ralph’s brother came to Colorado around eight years ago to place the memorial.”
