Dr. Ralph Kustoff, age 90, retired physician, passed peacefully in San Antonio, Texas on March 29, 2018. He will always be remembered as a doctor who took the time to ask about your family and then told you about his.

Born November 8, 1927 in New York, NY, Dr. Kustoff was the son of Hyman and Fannie Kustoff who were first generation immigrants to the U.S. Dr. Kustoff was a 1950 graduate of University of Tennessee Medical School. He began his private medical practice in Columbia, TN in 1998, specializing in eye and ear, nose and throat. He retired with his wife to San Antonio, Texas in 2007 to be closer to his children and grandchildren.

Dr. Kustoff served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War from 1952 to 1954 for which service he was awarded the Bronze Star Medal for meritorious service. The stories he shared from his time in military service, were always wrought with humor and warmth.

He was preceded in death by his loving wife of forty-five years, Elaine Wulfe Kustoff. They are survived by their four children, Julie Kustoff, Edward Kustoff, Daniel and his wife, Allison Kustoff, and Carole and her husband Gregg Stevens; and grandchildren, Hilary, Jeremy, Emily and Annie Kustoff and Stacy and Matthew Stevens.
