March 23, 1932 - July 28, 2018

Race Winner Sept. 13, 2014

Ralph Yagle can be found right outside Bruceville, IN, that is down Vincennes way!! Ralph has been actively flying birds since the early 80s, the only interruption was when he was driving race cars!! He is known as SPEED DOG LOFT, how many 80 year men do you know that would be willing to crawl into a car and take a few laps around the track!! Ralph is one of the toughest competitors in the club, when his birds are on it he truly is a force to be reckoned with!! As our most senior member and flyer Ralph is always inspiring and helping the new guys!!

On July 28, 2018 Ralph left his earthly home to sit at the right hand of our Lord. He will be so missed by all of our club members. Until we meet again at heaven's gates, rest in peace our dear friend.
