Ralph Diegel (1926 – 2024)

 It is with heavy hearts that the family announces the peaceful passing of Ralph John Diegel on March 18, 2024 at the North Bay Regional Health Centre at the age of 97.

Beloved husband of 30 years to Pat Kenzie Diegel. Predeceased by his first wife Gwen Darling. Ralph was a devoted father to John Diegel (Kitty), Susan Dell (Don), grandfather to Mike Dell (Kim), Whitney Dell (Marino), and great grandfather to Eve Dell. Ralph was loved dearly by his stepfamily, Mike Kenzie (Lynn), Steve Kenzie (Sheri), Rosie Kenzie Klus (Barry), Mitchell Kenzie Klus (Kylie-Anne), Becca Kenzie (Jack), Nula Kenzie, and Kayla Kenzie. Ralph was loved by everyone who knew him. He personified all that is good – kindness, integrity, humour, empathy, loyalty, intelligence, courage, playfulness, determination, and most of all generosity. Never was there a man more generous in spirit and in practice. He lived a remarkable life and improved the lives of everyone he met. His contributions to the community of North Bay are unmatched.

For over half a century, Ralph played The Last Post for others and now it is to be played for him. May he long be remembered. The family will receive visitors at Martyn Funeral Home on Friday April 12 from 2 – 4 and 6 – 8 pm and Saturday April 13 from 12:30 – 1:30 pm. A Legion Service will take place at 1:30pm in the chapel, followed by a funeral service. Reception will follow at Deegan’s Shoe Store at 174 Main Street West. (Due to construction on Main Street, Deegan’s may be accessed from the municipal parking garage on McIntyre Street.) In lieu of flowers, donations to North Bay Salvation Army, Rotary Club of North Bay, or a charity of choice would be greatly appreciated.
