Elected president in March 2003, after serving a year as president-elect, Ralls was an active member of the FPDA's Board of Directors and served on its Executive Committee for several years. He also chaired FPDA's Products and Technologies Committee and was a strong advocate for the FPDA's Young Executives (YES) program.
The FPDA Board of Directors has established a scholarship in memory of Ralls for his many contributions to the organization; it will fund tuition for a qualified member of the YES program to attend the University of Industrial Distribution. Donations to the scholarship are welcome.
Ralls is survived by Jean Chasey Ralls, his wife of 27 years, his two children, Jeff and Jill, and his mother.
Brian N. Kundinger, 2003-2004 president-elect, and president of Kundinger Controls will assume Ralls' duties and a new president-elect will be named in April 2004.
