  • Man, I can’t believe you are gone. When we met over 20 years ago who would have thought we would be friends this long. We had a lot of good times and worked on a lot of cool projects together. I will never forget you my friend. Rest easy buddy. See you on the other side.

  • Heartbroken. A childhood and lifelong friend to so many of us. He brought so many family friendships together and always loved his own family more than anything in the world. I will never forget this kind soul who let his smile and eyes do most of his talking. Over 50 years of fond memories that will never be forgotten. Thank you Lord for having Ralph “Ralphie” Esquivel in my life and all others who were blessed to know him.
