Ralph Wayne Voss, 81, passed away at Kate B. Reynolds Hospice Home on Jan. 12, 2020. He was born on Sept. 24, 1938 to Hobart Reid Voss and Deamie Garner Voss in Stokes County. Ralph proudly served in the US Army. He worked for Western Electric for eleven years then, went on to work for R.J. Reynolds retiring with thirty years of dedicated service. Ralph devoutly attended Arrington Heights Free Will Baptist Church. Among his many interests were gospel and country music, basketball, dancing and croquet. A huge NASCAR fan, Ralph attended races whenever he could. With a humble, friendly spirit, Ralph won many friends and admirers. He could easily make people laugh with his quick wit and dry humor. More than anything Ralph was a devoted husband and family man. His family will always remember him as an angel and the “cream of the crop.” In addition to his parents, Ralph was preceded in death by brothers, Ronald Voss and Calvin Voss; and sister, Carolyn Styers.
