Ralph Ruskowski

Ralph Albert Ruskowski passed away late Friday evening, June 10, 2016, surrounded by his loving family. At 84, he was predeceased by Mary, his beloved wife of 54 years. The devoted father of five will be truly missed by his family including; William (Jacqueline), David (Bobbie), Mary Ellen, Susan, John (Ruth), his 11 grandchildren; Bill (Suzie), Brian, Ellen, Maura, Maggie, Kyle, Joe, Matt, Brendan , Jeannie, Jack, and great grandchild Lena.

Ralph was a graduate of Germantown High School and St. Joseph’s University. In his younger years, he was an avid rower and a member of the Undine Barge Club. From 1952 to 1954, he served our country in the US Army and was stationed in Germany as part of a military police company.

A long time employee of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, he worked for Incarnation of Our Lord Church located in Olney until his retirement. Once retired, Ralph continued his enthusiasm toward reading and television series. As a volunteer, Ralph drove sick and elderly parishioners of St. Christopher’s Parish to their appointments. His most fulfilling passion was being with his children and grandchildren. He enjoyed attending their sporting events, recitals, birthdays, and graduations. He loved going out to breakfast with family and friends and always looked forward to going to the movies every Friday. He was the proud patriarch of our family and always looked for ways to help in any possible way. He was the ultimate role model to us all!

Relatives and friends are invited to pay tribute to Ralph’s life at his Visitation 9:00am Wednesday at St. Christopher Church 13301 Proctor Rd followed by his Funeral Mass at 10:30am. The interment of his urn will immediately follow at Calvary Cemetery, Conshohocken, PA.
