Ralph D. Bernklow

November 21, 1934 — March 13, 2014

Ralph D. Bernklow age 79 of Stow passed away peacefully on Thursday, March 13, 2014 at his residence surrounded by his loving family. He was the husband of Ruby (Corn) Bernklow.

Born in Putnam, CT on November 21, 1934 he was the son of the late Frederick Alton and Marjorie Elizabeth (Corkum) Bernklow.

Raised and educated in Thompson, Connecticut, Mr. Bernklow graduated from Tourtellotte High School and later attended Lowell Technical College. Ralph enlisted in the United States Air Force proudly serving his country from 1953-1961.

He lived in Stow where together with his wife they raised their loving children. He worked for many years as an electrical engineer at Raytheon, retiring in 1992.

During his spare time and retirement he enjoyed traveling, muzzle loading and shooting sports, old West history, attending his grandchildren's soccer, hockey, football, baseball, basketball games, dance recitals, and school plays, and driving his 1933 Chrysler Imperial Roadster—the first car he ever owned. Ralph served for many years as a committee member of the Troop 1 Stow Boy Scouts, was a former Captain of the Stow Minutemen, and for years acted as a junior rifle instructor for area youths.
