Mr. Steinlage was born July 26, 1947 to the late Frank and Frances Glissman Steinlage. Ralph was a founding partner of Gold Star Concrete Company for over 30 years.

He was quick to turn any event into a competition and took great pride in the accomplishments of his children and grandchildren. He loved deeply and will be profoundly missed by his many friends and family.
