November 27, 2013 – Balzac, AB
Ralph Wegener passed away suddenly in Balzac on Wednesday, November 27, 2013 at the age of 68 years.
Ralph is survived by his daughter Colleen Hay (Rick) and son Mark Wegener (Tracy), and his grandchildren Cody and Kendra. He is also survived by his two sisters, Jeanette Seabourne (John), and Deloros MacDonald (Al), as well as many nieces and nephews. Ralph will also be lovingly remembered by many extended family members and friends. Ralph was predeceased by his wife, Sheila.
Ralph was both an accomplished farmer as well as a successful businessman in his years of business as Founder of Ralph’s Motorsports. He will be respectfully remembered by the staff at Ralph’s Motorsports for being that guy that could answer any question about a snowmobile that was model years older than the age of the staff asking him the question. He was a hard worker and took great pride in what he accomplished. Ralph was well known for his sense of humor and joking nature. In a circle of laughter, Ralph was often at the center of it telling an unbelievable, yet true, story of something he did or something that happened to him. He could have written a book!!
Ralph was a family man and loved his children and grandchildren with all his heart. Especially warm to his heart were his grandchildren Cody and Kendra who he was immensely proud of and who brought him continuous smiles.
