Ralph was born in 1927 and died in 1980. After extensive searching through primary sources, we were able to piece together some of his architectural designs that are still standing in Phoenix, as well as a couple that has since been demolished.
Ralph Parachek wrote a book on architecture in 1967 called Desert Architecture.
