There will be a celebration of life at 1 p.m. Saturday at his home in Big Lake, 13547 W. Klutina.
He was born Nov. 10, 1949, in Salt Lake City. He became a resident of Alaska in 1965, living in Ketchikan, Juneau, Haines, Eagle River and most recently Big Lake.
He was the owner of Mechanical Piping Contractors for 28 years. He enjoyed hunting, fishing and family.
He always put a smile on the faces of the people who understood the value in his practical joke humor, said his family.
"He was a kind, loving and generous person and his shining face will surely be missed," they said. "All the time spent with Ralph was truly a blessing. We love you, honey."
He was preceded in death by his parents, Gaynelle and Donald Fuller; and brother-in-law, Kirt Butler.
He is survived by his wife, Shannon Fuller, of Big Lake; four daughters, Morgan Butler and Bria Butler, both of Anchorage, and Amber Felts and Namisha Felts, both of Spokane; mother, Judy Butler and her husband, Roger; nephew, Nathan Prince, of Anchorage; and brother, Allen Fuller, of Anchorage. He also had two dogs, Bernie and Goldie.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to the American Lung Cancer Association or Breast Cancer Association. His ashes will be placed in Paxon.
