Robert “Ralph” Barker
CNY GUN CLUBS – We are saddened to learn of the passing of Robert “Ralph” Barker this morning. Known for his love for hunting, fishing, trap shooting, and All things outdoors, a good road trip, his “Ralph-isms”, and a good ice cold coors light. Ralph was a good and humble man who loved his family and friends deeply, and would have given the shirt off his back, even if it was his last shirt. You will be missed, but we know you’re already scoping out a new place to put your tree stand up in Heaven. Rest In Peace, and happy hunting dear friend, until we meet again. Arrangements will be forthcoming at the convenience of the family . | Facebook
