Voorheesville - Ralph Lynn Oliver passed on Thursday April 14th at his home in Voorheesville surrounded by family. Born in Albany, Ralph was the son of the late Chester B and Betty Oliver. He is survived by his siblings Patty Peitro (Danny) and Raymond Oliver. Children Tyler Oliver (Cynthia), Michael Oliver (Kristina) and Tobias Oliver (Alex).

From an early age Ralph built and raced cars and helped with his fathers excavating business. He continued with the family business until he retired. Ralph served honorably in the Army at Vietnam. Throughout his life Ralph was happiest around family and spending time in his garage working on cars. There was nothing he couldn’t fix using his creative and extensive skill set. The good lord took one of the finest too soon. Ralph was a quiet, gentle soul with a depth that belied his quiet nature. He was a tremendous Father, brother and Grandpa. Ralph was truly one a kind and will be missed tremendously.
