"Ralph J. Cline, 85, of Ikes Fork, West Virginia, passed on Wednesday, October 7, 2020. Born on August 8, 1935 in Bull Creek, West Virginia, he was the son of the late Epp and Mary Cline. He was also preceded in death by older brother Harold (Madeline) Cline. Ralph is survived by his wife of 38 years, Garnet H. Cline, of the home, step grandchildren Trevor and Raithlyn Godfrey, and stepdaughter Gina Leong.

"Additional survivors include his daughters: Venus Dellorso, Robin (David) Marcus, Rafaella (David) Colmie; grandchildren: Chris and Jake Dellorso, Josh and Jessica Marcus, Madison Colmie; several great-children; brothers: Donald (Kathy) Cline, Dexter (Charley) Cline, Kermit (Fern) Cline; sisters: Ethel Lester, Josephine Mullens, Brenda (Walker) Blankenship, Tammy (Tommy Hatfield) Lester; and several nieces and nephews.

"Ralph was the most giving man there ever was. Somehow, he was always cheerful and optimistic. He was a glass half full kind of guy. Ralph never complained, never had a harsh word, and always had the ability to make you feel better after speaking with him. He lifted you up when you were down and helped you see the goodness in all things. He had a playful sense of humor and an infectious, unforgettable giggle. Ralph was like sunshine on a cloudy day. He touched the lives all who were lucky enough to know him.

"Ralph never met a stranger. A gentle man and a gentleman, he was humble, compassionate, dependable, charming, tender-hearted, and generous beyond measure. Ralph believed in working hard and never giving up. He was a coal miner and a veteran

"An adventuresome soul, Ralph traveled 48 states alongside his wife. He found joy in good food and made sure to tell you to eat a bite for him. He and his wife spent many of their younger days at blue grass and country music festivals. Ralph often reminisced about his motorcycle rides and hunting trips with his brothers. He was a proud member of the Big Oak Bunch who went camping at the farm for 28 years. Ralph took pride in looking after his yard. Ralph lived a simple life with extravagant meaning, and he wouldn’t have had it any other way.

"It is a true privilege to have called Ralph Cline a friend. He was purely one a kind, and there will never be another like him. There isn’t a doubt Ralph will be dearly missed by all.

"In honoring Ralph’s adamant wishes, no services will be held."
