Ralph C. Calkins Jr. 43, of Schenectady passed away on suddenly Friday evening February 8, 2019 after a short illness.

Born and raised in Coxsackie, Ralph was the son of Donna Tooker and the late Ralph C. Calkins Sr. A graduate from Coxsackie Athens High School, he attended Siena College and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Biology.

He worked for AMCH in lab data for over twenty years. An avid outdoorsman, Ralph loved to hike, bike and occasionally camp. He also enjoyed reading, listening to Toto. The king of one liner’s, Ralph enjoyed spending time with his friends, he loved all animals and cherished his nieces and nephews.

A deep thinker, he once wrote: “My mind is large like an Olympic pool, deep, but shallow on one side.”

Predeceased by his father Ralph C. Calkins Sr., he is survived by his mother Donna Tooker of St. Petersburg, FL, his sisters Tina Geraci (Joe), Penny Supina, Linda Mix and Heather Boehlke. He is also survived by his nephews Stephen, Kevin, Christopher and nieces Bethany, Coral, Piper and his great nephews Garret, Owen and Riley.

Ralph’s jokes and dry sense of humor will be missed the most. Keep the angels in stitches Ralphie.

A service for Ralph will be held in the spring at Evergreen Memorial Park in Colonie, NY.

To Ralph’s AMC family thank you for such love and attention to our brother and son over the years.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the local Humane Society

I’m sorry for your loss, it can be hard to lose someone close to you. I wanted to share a hope with you for the future from the Bible. It is at Revelation 21:4, which gives us reassurance that God will one day take away sickness, disease-caused pain and tears of sorrow. We will all one day live in peace. If you would like to learn more or have any questions, please go to the official website JW.ORG.

So very sorry to hear about his passing. I remember a young boy playing indians in the front yard. He had rabbits and goats. His. Dad was my favorite uncle. Guess they are together again.
