Ralph Nugent was a local advocate for bicycle safety and motorist awareness. Being an employee of DuPont and Invista for fifty years, Ralph was a safety conscious individual. Those who knew him personally describe a man dedicated to making the road safer for cyclists. He played an active role in community efforts by helping to identify dangerous areas where he felt “Share the Road” signs were needed.
Ralph’s widow, Dottie, encourages cyclists to be aware and cautious. Ralph’s daughter, Amy, would like her father’s legacy of safety and active healthy lifestyles to carry on in everyone. She especially wants people to continue loving their sport, to get off the couch no matter what their age or excuse, and to “Live Strong”.
