It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of Ralph Falbo, our loving husband, father, grandfather and brother.
Ralph passed away peacefully in Revelstoke, B.C. on April 29, 2020, after a courageous battle with cancer.
He was born in Revelstoke, B.C. on January 28, 1943 to Carmen and Philomena Falbo. Ralph was predeceased by his twin brother, Thomas, his mother Philomena and his father Carmen. He is survived by his loving wife, Patricia; two daughters: Michele Wood (Jeff) and Tracey Peluso (Rico); his four grandchildren: Derek Wood (Kelsey), Jaclyn Wood (Aaron), Dillan Peluso and Alyssa Peluso (Daryn); his three sisters: Rosemarie Davies (Jim), Phyllis Twa (Tim) and Patricia Rollheiser (Rolly); sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law: Joan and Mike Martiniuk and Karen and Fred Olsson and his numerous extended family members and friends.
Ralph married Patricia on June 6, 1964 and had a loving marriage for 56 years. He was very well respected throughout his life, whether it was with his service with the provincial government or with his many involvements within the community.
At the age of 5 he started playing hockey and skiing. He was a very accomplished skier and was instrumental in starting the Nancy Green Ski League in the Okanagan region. He was a coach as well as an organizer for many years. Ralph was thrilled to be able to ski at Revelstoke Mountain Resort up until this past season.
Ralph also enjoyed golfing, fishing, camping and travelling. His family always came first and his grandchildren were his pride and joy to his last day. A special thank you to Dr. Hunt and all the other wonderful doctors and nurses at the Queen Victoria Hospital for their exceptional care and support at this time.
