Ralph was born into a large, loving family. He had seven brothers and sisters. Ralph married Kathleen J. Hardesty in 1948 and they had two children from this union. Ralph and Kathleen later divorced in 1954. He then married Marion Burkhead in 1957. Marion brought three children into their family and they had a son together. Marian preceded him in death on January 2, 2010. Ralph possessed many great qualities that caused all who knew him to regard him as a "Good Man." He had integrity, and his word meant something. Ralph understood the meaning of hard work and he worked very hard to take care of his family. Ralph was both a very strong, and a very gentle man, and he had many great life-long friends. He was immensely kind, and his reputation is that of a "true gentleman." Ralph was humble, giving and incapable of judging anyone. He smiled easily and his laugh was both sweet and sincere. To know this man was to know what kindness, unconditional love, compassion, and understanding truly mean, and in that we all knew and loved the same remarkable man who enriched our lives beyond measure. Ralph served his country in the United States Army during the Korean War. Ralph was a butcher by trade. He worked for Oscar Mayer in Davenport for 33 years. He then drove the big yellow school bus for North Scott Community School District for 15 years. Ralph enjoyed fishing, gambling and riding motorcycles. Those left to honor his memory include two daughters, Dr. Cheryl Duree, D.C., and her husband Ben and Mari Renée Duree, both of Grand Junction, Colo; one son, Ralph H. Duree of Eldridge; two stepdaughters, Diane Ashe and her husband Ron of Spring Hill, Tenn., and Kathleen Smith and her husband Gary of Rock Island; one stepson, Dale Burkhead and his wife Randa of Muscatine; one granddaughter, Tasha May Duree; one great-granddaughter, Lacee Kilgore; and two sisters, Naomi Sly and her husband Jim of Davenport and Teresa Patterson and her husband Junior of Lucas, Iowa. In addition to his wife Marian, Ralph was preceded in death by his parents, one granddaughter, Kelly Jo Fay, three sisters, Laruen Smith, Betty Swan and Billy Burgess, and two brothers, Leo and Joe Duree. We know that he was proud of all of us, just as we are all proud to have had him as our father, grandfather, great-grandfather, uncle, brother, and brother-in-law. on November 24, 2011.6
