Kett, Ralph L., Jr. passed away on December 21, 2022. Beloved son of dearly departed Ralph Sr and Norma (neé Nissen). Loving father to Marcie Cox, Pamela Gantkowski, Ralph III, Maria & Martina Kett, and the late John Kett. Adoring grandfather to his many grandchildren (18!). Brother to John and the late Richard Kett.
Those who knew Ralph knew how much he enjoyed spending time with family & friends. He rarely missed an opportunity to attend a party and regale everyone in attendance with stories. Like his sons, Ralph was an avid sports fan, especially the Philadelphia teams. He always made time to watch games on tv and was a devoted follower of many tv shows.
During his lifetime, Ralph touched the lives of many, whether through his role as an insurance agent, or as a foster father to several foster children and most importantly as a host “Father” to visiting kids from foreign countries, most notably, Malena, Alex, Katia, Toño & Edna. Ralph was also an animal lover, and had countless pets through his life. They were all surely waiting at the rainbow bridge for him. He also leaves behind his bereft cat Tiger. Ralph’s wit & charm will be missed by anyone who knew him.
