Recently announced he's hanging up his carpenters apron because of health issues.
Sad news.

He lives in Faro, Yukon. Yes he is having health issues and he is also having issues with PayPal and Facebook. EMT's are a problem too so...good luck getting anything from Ralph unless you go up there, meet him and pay him cash in Can$. Ralph is a stand up guy and has been a friend of mine for years now.

I thought there was a son at one point who'd taken over the Biz?
