Ralph J. Molé, 73, of Haworth, passed away gently on October 17th, 2022.  He is survived by his loving brother Joseph, his two sons, Brett and Todd, and Todd’s fiancé. Eugenie.

Ralph was born in Williamsburg, Brooklyn to Wanda (née Kulaga) and Ralph Molé.  While attending Queens College he solidified his passion for rock and blues guitar by forming several bands with his brother and local friends, playing gigs in the smoky dives around the New York City area where he met the love of his life, Sandra D’alfonso and the two of them soon married and eventually settled down over the Hudson River in the idyllic suburbs northwest of Manhattan.

Equipped with a degree in communications, Ralph diligently worked his way up the ladder in the television and sports entertainment industry as an award-winning producer and director, taking part in and winning Emmy’s for his work at the Olympics, the X-Games, and Track & Field.  He leaves behind a legacy of incredible accomplishment in his field and was loved and revered by his peers and colleagues, many of whom looked up to him as a mentor.

Ralph was a hard worker and provided a bountiful life for those he loved.  He will be missed greatly by those close to him both through ties of family and profession.

A celebration of Ralph’s life will take place on Friday, October 21st, 10 AM – 12:30 PM at the Frech-McKnight Funeral Home, 161 Washington Avenue, Dumont.  A Funeral Service will be held later that same day at 1:15 PM at Garden of Memories, Washington Township.
