Thomas Peoples Obituary

Thomas Ralph Peoples was born June 30, 1927, and passed away peacefully at the age of 96 on November 9, 2023, at his home for the last twenty (20) months at Self Nursing Home in Hueytown, Alabama. He loved and adored all his friends, residents and staff at Self, and all adored him as well. He was lovingly called Prince Ralph. The family wishes to extend a very warm Thank You to each and every one of the residents and staff at Self Skilled Nursing Home and Rehab Lodge. He is preceded in death by his loving wife, Minnie Bradley Peoples and her two daughters who he helped raise until their deaths, both at an early age, Helen and Linda; his father, General Neely Peoples; mother, Katie Burns Peoples; brother, Roy Levi Grant Peoples and his sister in law, Evelyn Knight Peoples and their son, his nephew, Phillip B. Peoples. He is survived by his nephew, Larry Grant Peoples, (Robin), niece, Linda Peoples Kutsch, nephew, Donald Peoples (Mollie), and niece, Kathy Peoples Savelio, (Mark), as well as many great-nieces and great- nephews, all of which lovingly called him Uncle Ralph. He moved to Fort Lauderdale, Florida at an early age where he worked on a dairy farm milking cows. While living there he met a man who took him under his wing and taught him the art of plastering. He worked his trade as a “plasterer” until he retired in 1988. His work can be seen in many of the older building in cities across the nation including Birmingham, Alabama; Ft. Lauderdale, Florida; Pompano Beach, Florida; Boynton Beach, Florida; Dayton, Ohio; as well as many others in Georgia, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Virginia. As a young man, he always had convertible automobiles. He was a member of Concord Highland Baptist Church in Hueytown, AL where he also served as deacon.  A Memorial Service will be scheduled at a later time to allow as many family members who are out of state to attend. Uncle Ralph, you will be forever remembered by all and truly missed by everyone!
