A Mass of Christian Burial will be 10am at St. Cecilia’s church, 1001 Woods Rd Solvay on Monday, July 8th. Ralph will be laid to rest with family at Assumption Cemetery. 


Ralph P. Liepke, 63, passed away on Friday, June 28, 2019, at Crouse Hospital. He left us after a difficult battle with paraneoplastic pemphigus (PNP) which was associated with his underlying chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL).


Ralph was born fourth of 10 children to Leon (Sonny) Liepke and Carleen (Gladys) Cayea on June 6, 1956 at Syracuse General Hospital. He is survived by his mother; two sisters; Carleen Deptula, Barbara Manipole (Robert), seven brothers; Raymond (Kim Harris Liepke), Leon (Liz Smith), Bruce, Ronald, Joseph, Jeffrey and Tracy (Heather Hasdell), his daughter; Melissa (Jason Wilczynski), his granddaughters; Camara “Cami”, Payton, (Haley) and Lana Mae. 


Professionally, Ralph joined the United States Army in ‘74 just before completing his graduation at Corcoran high school. He obtained his high school diploma while enlisted in Schofield barracks, Honolulu, Hawaii. Ralph was a senior assembler for Lockheed Martin before he retired in 2017. Ralph also owned and operated Ralph’s Tree Service for several years locally, beginning in the mid-90’s.


Personally, Ralph was an active outdoorsman. He enjoyed boating, fishing, gardening, tending to his numerous fruit trees in his yard, birdwatching, storm watching, and annual apple and berry picking with his daughter and granddaughters. He also loved ball-room dancing “with the ladies“, setting off firework displays at his residence, his daughter’s residence and at the annual Liepke Fourth of July party at Kasoge Lake. He was, privately a very spiritual and religious man. He attended St. Cecilia’s church each Sunday with his Mom and he often attributed his spirituality to his Native American heritage. 


Ralph was also very proud of his limited addition anniversary Harley Davidson which he frequently took on impromptu day-long fishing trips. With this bike, he participated annually in the March of Dimes bikers for babies. In 2011, he single-handedly raised over $1,100 in donations and was named a top rider for this charitable event. Another charitable event Ralph took pride in was purchasing and donating an entire turkey dinner each thanksgiving to the Salvation Army. Ralph will be fondly remembered for his giving nature, goofy demeanor, outgoing personality, show of patriotism and being a proud Dad and Papa.


Family, friends and others whose lives were touched by Ralph are invited to the Whelan Bros & Hulchanski Funeral Home, 5854 Belle Isle Road, Syracuse, New York 13209, from 2 - 5pm, July 7th 2019 to reminisce, grieve, and support each other.
