Obituary

Ralph George Parliament, Jr., age 77, of San Antonio, TX, was born in Waco, TX on October 21, 1940, and passed away on February 10, 2018. Ralph was preceded in death by his parents, Ralph, Sr. and Ella Hahn Parliament. Ralph was a graduate of University High School and Baylor University, Waco, TX, with a Bachelor Degree in Business Administration. He retired as a District Manager with AT&T in 1991, after 30 years of service, he was also a Life Member of the AT&T Pioneers and the Beaumont Lodge No. 286.

Ralph is survived by his beloved wife, Lettie Parliament and loyal fur-baby Maxx; stepchildren, Arthur T. Maldonado and Monica Rainey; daughter, Wendy Dornbusch; granddaughters, Kayla Dornbusch Justice and husband, Jacob, Paige Parliament, Paxton Parliament; grandsons, Jonathon Rainey, Kyle Rainey and Aaron Dornbusch; great grandson, Kayson Cole Rainey and father-in-law, Arturo M. Gomez; special cousins, Margaret and Richard Mondragon and his buddy, Gilbert Maldonado, who was a good friend. Ralph is also survived by his estranged son, Phillip; estranged step-daughter, Jennifer Perez and estranged granddaughter, Tina Rainey.

Ralph meant a lot to so many people, blessing every life he touched. He was a man of integrity and honesty, but he also knew how to pull a good prank or tell a joke. He was always the first to jump in and help others, without blinking an eye. Ralph lived a full life in his 77 years, enjoyed spending time with family and friends, traveling, hunting, never missed watching his Baylor Bears football team, an avid reader and especially enjoyed his trips to Las Vegas, never passing up the opportunity of hitting a lucky slot machine. He was a huge Elvis fan, in which his trademark signature was TKA, (The Kings Agent). The world was a better place with him in it, he will be sorely missed beyond words. Ralph is now with his other fur-baby Kody Lee Brown Jr., who has been waiting for him at the Rainbow Bridge and they now enjoy their daily walks. The family would like to give a special thanks to Sonterra Health Center and staff, especially to Ali and Gloria for all the care they provided to Ralph.

Visitation will be held on Saturday, February 17, 2018, from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm at Porter Loring Mortuary North.

A special note that was posted on Ralph's mother's obituary dated September 1971:
"All my infirmities have been nailed to the cross. I've been over rough roads, He always has gone before me. I trust Him to go before me tomorrow.
He is my Jesus, I've loved Him all these years, and He has loved me all these years. If it is fate that we meet tomorrow, that is all right too.
I'm not saying I want to die, but I want to be ready. I love the Lord. Ralph knows it.
The Lord gave me Ralph to love and to cherish and to raise up and be a good boy. I'm not afraid. I'm not. There's a shadow, but I'm not afraid.
When the chips were down He was there. He always showed me the way. It may not be the way I figured, but it was a good way. This isn't the first time the path has been troubled. He has gone before. I do have faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and in the power of His Cross. It has been made alive in me.
I love the Holy Spirit. "Stay with me, and keep me calm through the night! I love you, Jesus! Don't leave me Jesus!"
I have an advocate with the Father. When I get down and can't pray, He prays for me. Father, pray for me!"

Now, Mother and Son are reunited.
