He was born on Mother's Day, May 11, 1930 to the late Helen K. (Snyder) Bearinger and was the husband of Nedra L. (Leid) Bearinger with whom he shared 63 years of marriage.

Ralph was a member of Muddy Creek Lutheran Church where he served as an usher and did outdoor property work.

Ewell Inc., retiring with more than 2 million miles in 29 years. After retirement he drove limousine to airports for Landis Luxury Coaches and also privately for friends. He enjoyed playing golf and table tennis. He had a pilot's license and took many friends on sightseeing flights from the Kutztown airport. He once owned his own airplane prior to entering the Army.

He was a Denver Fire Company member and volunteered for several years serving as assistant chief and driver.
