Ralph Douglas Westbrook was born on August 20, 1961 in Middlesboro, Ky. Ralph was called to his heavenly home on the morning of April 7, 2021 at the age of 59 with his wife Marilyn by his side at their home in Anniston, Alabama. Ralph was of the Baptist Faith, was saved during a Revival held by Rev. Terry Winsteads. Ralph served with great pride 4 years in the United States Air Force where he received many accommodations. His passion was in the field of robotics where he strived and achieved being one of the best in programming and maintenance. He was an avid Harley rider most all of his life and enjoyed that to the fullest, where he did many charitable rides and always paid homage to his Veterans brothers.
