Ralph Bradley Barry, 63, of Ormond Beach, Florida and West Roxbury, Massachusetts, died on February 9, 2024, at his Florida home.

Ralph was born in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts on October 5, 1960, to Mary [Bradley] and John Barry. He attended Don Bosco Technical High School and East Boston Trade School, and he studied at the Wentworth Institute of Technology. Ralph recently retired as a Journeyman Ironworker, Steward, Foreman, and Certified Welder-Rigger at the International Association of Bridge, Structural, Ornamental and Reinforcing Iron Workers (Local 7). His “high steel” work had him soaring above the Boston skyline, building landmarks including the Zakim Bridge.

Ralph was preceded in death by his mother Mary, father John, sister Dianne, nephew Stefan, and friends too numerous to list. He is survived by his sisters Elizabeth, Joan, and Joy; brother David; nephews Damian, David, Daniel, Nicholas, and Benjamin; niece Kelly Caulfield, and Serena; grand-niece Olivia, and grand-nephew Cameron.

In lieu of flowers, donations to the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, Massachusetts, or the charity of your choice, would be greatly appreciated.
