Of Plymouth, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday October 22nd, 2019 in Mass General Hospital in Boston at the age of 66.

Born on January 6, 1953 in Boston; son of the late Anthony M. Grande and Martha (Oliverio) Grande, Ralph was raised in Belmont and resided in Randolph for over 30 years before moving to the Pine Hills in Plymouth almost 3 years ago.

A graduate of Belmont High School with the Class of 1971; Ralph was employed as an Engineer with the Raytheon Corporation for 40 years.

Ralph was a simple guy who enjoyed the simple things in life. He had a great sense of humor and had a great outlook on life. Nothing in this world was more important to Ralph than his family and he treasured each and every moment spent with them.

He is survived by his beloved wife of 33 years Janet L. MacDonald, his devoted & loving daughters Alicia Grande of Randolph and Virginia; Jillian Grande Raines of Fall River; and Taya Burke and her husband Dave of Dedham; his cherished grandchildren Isaiah Anthony Lee Raines; Amari Njie; and John James Burke; and his dear siblings Rosemary Mitchell of the Pine Hills in Plymouth; Anthony M. Grande Jr of Jupiter, FL; and Suzanne Grande Roback of Watertown. In addition he is survived by many nieces and nephews.

I will always remember Ralph as a great guy, singing, smiling and telling a joke. I worked with him many years in Waltham and Andover and will always have very fond memories. RIP Ralph. We will miss you.

I'm so sad to hear about Ralph's passing. I worked with Ralph for many years in Waltham and would run into him from time to time after Waltham's closing. He was one of the nicest guys, he would always make me laugh with his sense of humor. Always a great dance partner at any of the Raytheon get togethers. Working at Raytheon for 39 plus years I have met many, many people. Ralph is someone that was always one of my favorites. Anytime I think of Ralph it will be with fondness and a smile. My condolences to Jan and family. You always knew that his family meant so much to him. My thoughts and prayers to all of Ralph's family and friends.

Rest in Peace Ralph, you will be dearly missed.
