Ralph Adlesic

April 19, 1919 ~ August 23, 2017 (age 98)
CUYAHOGA FALLS - Ralph Adlesic passed away August 23, 2017 surrounded by loving family into God's Heavenly Kingdom at the age of 98. He was born in Duluth, Minnesota in 1919 and grew up in Stow, Ohio. A 1938 graduate of Stow High School, he obtained his pilot's license while still a teenager. For 20 years he owned his own plane and flew all over the country.

A hard worker, he was a Master Stone Mason, who built his own home and was a proud union member of 78 years. In 1956 he married the love of his life Ardyth (Moore) Adlesic. They enjoyed 48 years of very happy marriage raising two sons. Family camping trips took them all over the U.S. and Canada. He was a long-time Cuyahoga Falls resident, and had long memberships with the United Presbyterian Church and the Sertoma Club of Akron. Dad enjoyed travel, watching sports, classical music, Sunday School, talking to people, and life, which he lived to the fullest. Most of all he loved his family, and was a devoted husband and father. Dad was a kind and gentle man who lived his Christian faith, and who could see good in everyone.

His wife, Ardyth (2004) preceded him in death as did his brothers, Rudy and Ray. To mourn his passing, he leaves behind his two sons, John Adlesic of Cuyahoga Falls and Martin (Melanie) Adlesic of Stow; his "two favorite girls", granddaughter, Jordan Adlesic and Patricia (Patty) Bullock; grandsons, Tyler, Steven and Sauwn; great-granddaughter, Phoebe; a sister, Evelyn Statler of Dayton, Ohio; and numerous friends.
