brief history of death and life of Ralph Delquadro
May, 27, 2000 | layton utah
Ralph Delquadro is my father, he passed away from a massive heart attack after demanding his high blood pressure medication from the pharmacist who then called his dr. His Dr. was in the same building and came down to consult with Ralph, apparently several years earlier when he had been admitted for several weeks at the hospital for pancreatitus, he was told he would need a heart bypass surgery, to which we never knew he needed until he had died, and the dr. told us he knew, but refused to believe some walking and chewing a couple asprin a day wouldn't resolve...So on the evening of May 26. 2000 he checked in, called my sister, and said he was in the hospital, but didn't want visitors until the next morning because he was tired. at 6a.m. the next morning,I called the hospital to check on him, and the nurse told me if I wanted to see him, I better hurry and get there, they were doing CPR on him in the ICU unit.....as I pulled into the hospital parking lot, by brothe-in-law called, and said, Karen, I'm sorry, but your dad just passed away....
all of his immediate family was there, but no one saw him until after he passed.
He married Hanna Mae Bartlett, and adopted her 3 children, and they went on to have 2 children of their own.
He worked for the Southern Pacific R.R. all his life and retired, claiming it was the best thing he ever did! he loved getting up in the morning and going to the libriary to read various papers, he hung out with his "buddies" at Mc Donalds and getting his senior priced coffee.
He made spaghetti that stood in a catagory all on it's own,
He was an amazing athlete in school, and went to college on a football scholarship, but he also played basketball and apparently quite good.

Jane Delquadro Sharp * wonderful Aunt, she always has a story
Dad estranged himself from his siblings for some reason, he never spoke of his family, never spoke Italian that I can remember, we did not live a typical Italian family life, my understanding is that his brothers never accepted my mother with her 3 children, My uncle Mike looked just like him I thought, but he would talk about the family history as well as Jane...we savored every word.
after dad passed away, we discovered that he had a sister that was stillborn, wiith the exception of his sister Jane, the entire family is burried in the murray city cemetary..in 2006 my daughter was stillborn and burried above my father, there is still no marker for her...but there she lies in peace with her grandpa.
