Ralph Joseph Galante of Bridgewater died peacefully in his home on March 11, 2023. He was 94.
He was born on May 23, 1928 in Brockton, son of the late Carl Michael and Theresa (Ferrante) Galante. Ralph loved his family, had an unbelievable work ethic and an overall love of life. However, his guiding force in life was his strong faith. He prayed the rosary daily, often more than once a day, watched the TV Mass daily, and was devoted to the Chaplet of Divine Mercy everyday.
Ralph enjoyed working in the garden on his farm, boating with his family and treasured family outings. He especially enjoyed dancing, skiing and traveling.
