Ralph Howard Culpeper, age 89, of Norfolk, Virginia passed away June 4, 2020. Ralph was born on August 27, 1930 in Norfolk County (Chesapeake), Virginia to Leander and Della King Culpeper.

Ralph left home at an early age to help support his family, working many jobs. His lifelong career was as a dairy salesman for Birtcherd, Shumadine, Sealtest, and Pet dairies for over 30 years. He was an active member of Riverside and Levelgreen Baptist Churches. He retired from Civil Service which included Norfolk Naval Shipyard and Naval Aviation Depot Norfolk.

His passions were God, his wife and his four sons. He was a devoted Washington Redskins fan, NASCAR and Pontiac enthusiast. He loved his little dog, Blizzard.

He is survived by four sons: Gary and his wife, Janelle, Larry and his wife, Joanne, Barry and his wife, Debora, and Jerry. Grandchildren include Shannon, Lori, Elyce, and Bryce. Great-grandchildren include Clayton, Liam, and Mason.

He was predeceased by the love of his life, Ruth, after 62 years of marriage. Ralph will always be remembered as a loving husband, father, and grandfather.

The family would like to thank Bayside Health & Rehab as well as Heartland Hospice for all of their loving care and dedication. In lieu of flowers, donations to the American Cancer Society in Ralph’s memory would be appreciated.

I worked with Ralph at the Central Floral location of Farm Fresh where he was a great floral delivery driver. We loved Ralph's cheery smile, love of his family and the way he enjoyed eating chicken. Rest in peace kind and faithful servant. Carol Dudley.

I already miss Grandaddy so much. He loved his family with all of his heart and would have given them anything. The best gift he ever gave me was “love you too” being his last words he spoke to me. Love you Grandaddy, don’t forget to give Grandma that hug from me.
