Ralph Thomas Gruber

Ralph Thomas Gruber passed away peacefully surrounded by family on September 7, 2023. Ralph was a retired United States Air Force Veteran that served for 20 years from Shaw AFB, SC; Okinawa; Osan AFB, South Korea; Howard AFB, Panama; Wright Patterson AFB, OH; where he retired as a Technical Sergeant.  He then went on to have a full career working with Lockheed Martin in Ontario, CA; Reno, NV; and Marietta, GA where he finally hung up the work hat to retire and devote time to his family as well as his hobbies. 

He passed his time away taking care of his loved ones, fishing, he was an avid reader and loved his books - of all varieties.  He would listen to his music while tinkering with electronics and on any travels he made sure he took his camera.  He lived a full life taking care of those around him and doing the things he loved.

He was preceded in death by his parents Roy M. Gruber and M. Monika Gruber and his wife of 39 years Nancy Faye Gruber. 

He is survived by his daughters Sherri L. Lawrence (Pipo), Julie A. Scarborough (James) and Mandy Foreman (Frank). 7 grandchildren E. Eddie Barkley, Christopher E. Barkley, Ryan J. Hughes, Austin E. Evans, Kymber L. Evans, Alyssa F. Scarborough and Kody W. Foreman. 8  great grand-children Hailey, Stella, Averee, Charli, Raelynn, Aly, Emery, Jamison. His brother Mark Gruber and sister Dawn Bowers along with numerous nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles.  

Arrangements for his Celebration of Life will be announced at a later date.  

In lieu of flowers, you can make a donation in Ralph’s name to:  wellstar.org/givetohospice and designate the gift to Tranquility @ Cobb Hospice
