The database page for Ralph Eugene Flowers, Jr
Ralph was nicknamed "Jughead" by his grandmother, or "Jug" for short. He was the son of Ralph and Helen Flowers, brother of Connie, Sandy, Arlene, Judy, and Andrea. In Vietnam he was nicknamed "Koolaid" because his mother always sent over Koolaid packs for him and everybody wanted one from him. We, his family, would love to hear from anyone who might of known him.
From a niece,
God gave us a gift for a brother for a short time. Sad as it is he also took him away from us before he had a chance to have children of his own or to even have a chance to meet his nieces or nephews.
He was a truly wonderful amazing brother and a blessing for a son. Words from my mother. From Jeannie, Robert, Joey, Bailey, Teagan, Hanna, and Shanna - Even though we didn't get a chance to meet you in life, your love lives on in all of us.
