D’ANTONIO, Ralph Paul



D’ANTONIO, RALPH PAUL – (After 17-years as a St. Catharines Firefighter, Ralph retired from the Ontario Fire Marshall’s Office).   After a long, strong life and a short illness, Ralph died peacefully at his home on January 20, 2024 at the age of 84.  Predeceased by his beloved wife Judith “Judy”, he is survived by his son Morgan.  Ralph was the last of six siblings: Blanche, John, Herbert, Eugene, and Paul. He will be fondly remembered by his nieces and nephews including Missy (& Joe) Roma, Cody Chanell, Eugene D'Antonio, Tracey D'Antonio, Jessica Crawford and Chris Crawford.  In addition to his work with the Fire Services, Ralph had many hobbies and interests. Known for always being in his workshop, he was an avid carpenter and enthusiastic mechanic. In his last year he finished rebuilding a 1947 farm tractor. Visitors will be received on Tuesday, January 23, 2024 from 2:00- 4:00 PM and 6:00 – 8:00 PM.  At Ralphs request, no service will take place, and he will be laid to rest with Judy at Victoria Lawn Cemetery at a later date.   Donations in Ralph’s memory may be made to the Lung Association or the Canadian Cancer Society, and may be left at

Special thanks goes out to Ralph’s good friend Tony, without whom he would not have been able to remain at home.  Tony’s care and compassion extended the quality of Ralph’s life, and we will be forever grateful.
