Ralph was born December 10, 1934, in Debden, SK to Ethel and Harry Price. He was one of five children with siblings: Jean, Francis (Allie), Faye (Red) and Art (Joyce).

    Ralph was always a bright light for us during the Christmas season in his role as Santa. Very few people can pull off playing Santa, but it was Ralph's spirit and kind heart that made him believable as jolly old Saint Nick. He took this responsibility very seriously every year for many years and he was a true professional. Ralph's light will always shine for us, particularly as the holiday season rolls around. RIP "Santa". - Prairie Mall Administration Team

I always enjoyed visits with your Mom and Dad when they came out this way to visit their Families. Uncle Mel usually made sure we got to see your parents. May his life live on through all the many memories. Judy and Alvin Hove
