Ralph was born in Seneca Falls, the son of the late Benedict and Mary (Farula) Leone. He attended local schools and was a lifelong resident of Seneca Falls. Ralph was a member of St. Patrick's Church, SMS, and Rumseyville Sportsman's Club, all in Seneca Falls. For over 20 years he was a police officer with the Seneca Falls Police Department and was a member of the Seneca Falls PBA where he served as past President; a career in which he had great pride. After retiring from the police, he worked another 10 years for Seneca Falls with the Codes Department. He enjoyed playing cards and had many cars over the years that he enjoyed displaying as a member of the Prison City Ramblers car club in Auburn. He also managed Varsity Pizza in Seneca Falls; the first time in his younger years, and again after retirement, with his son, Jason. His greatest joy in life though was spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren.

Ralph is survived by his devoted and loving companion of over 25 years, Paulette Sarratori; son, Jason (Holly) Leone; Paulette's sons, Steven (Mary) and Jeffrey Sarratori; grandson, Bowen Leone; Paulette's grandchildren, Graysen, Olivia, and Harlow Sarratori; brother, John (Robin) Leone; sister, Rosalie Ferrara; brother-in-law, Arneldo Palladini; as well as many nieces, nephews, extended family and friends. In addition to his parents, he is predeceased by his sister, Mary Jo Palladini; brother, Benedict Leone; brother-in-law, Sam Ferrara, and nieces, Karen Keller and Anne Agnello.
