He was an active umpire of the MVUA, GLBUA, and NHBUA. He had done as many as 150 games a year and loved doing every one. He was a great umpire and mentored so many in his knowledge of rules and his excellent mechanics.
Professor Ralph Wade was employed by Northern Essex Community College in Haverhill/Lawrence where he ran and taught the EMS program.
He touched the lives of so many people as a doctor, an umpire and a teacher.
Ralph will be missed by so many. After all, he touched so many lives in his life, and no-one can ever recall Ralphie saying an unkind word about anyone. He was 60 years old.
