1937-2013

Ralph H. Riedel, loving husband, father, and grandfather of St. Hedwig, Texas, passed away Monday, April 15, 2013, at the age of 76. He was born on Jan. 19, 1937, in Guadalupe County to Bernard and Helen (Marbach) Riedel.

Ralph honorably served in the U.S. Army and was a member of the American Legion Post No. 539. He worked for Friedrich Air Conditioning Co. for 45 years. Ralph enjoyed playing music in the “Riedel Brothers Band” and did so for more than 20 years. The family would like to extend a special thanks to the “Angels” that cared for him for more than three years in the memory ward of the Frank M. Tejeda Texas State Veterans Home.

Ralph was preceded in death by his parents; sister Bernice Keller; brother-in-law Charlie Keller; and sister-in-law Mildred Riedel.

He is survived by his loving wife of 53 years, Etherine Riedel; son Randy Riedel and wife Debbie; daughters Rhonda Broll and Roxane Padalecki and husband David; grandchildren Lisa Broll, Tyler and Alexa Padalecki, Jennifer Miles and husband Chad, and Matthew Helm; brothers Everett Riedel and wife Josephine, Harold Riedel and wife Evelyn, and Elgin Riedel and wife Margaret; sisters Margaret Reilly and husband Darwin, Rose Jupe and husband Dennis, and Patsy Haecker and husband Jock; like a twin brother and his sidekick, Wallace Real and wife Joyce; numerous nieces and nephews; and many loving friends.

Visitation was held on Thursday, April 18, from 5-8 p.m. with a rosary recited at 7 p.m. in the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary Catholic Church in St. Hedwig.

A funeral Mass was held on Friday at 10 a.m. in the church.

Interment followed in the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary Catholic Cemetery in St. Hedwig.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary Rosary Society, P.O. Box 100, St. Hedwig, TX 78152; Alzheimer Society at www.alz.org or by mail at Alzheimer’s Association, P.O. Box 96011, Washington, D.C. 20090-6011; or to a charity of one’s choice.
