December 3, 1938 — April 4, 2024

Atlanta

Mr. Ralph Edward Konyha, 85 of Atlanta, Michigan died peacefully at Hillman's Haven on April 4, 2024. He was born the 14th child of 15 in Riley Township, Michigan on December 3, 1938 to the late, John and Irma (Tosh) Konyha. He graduated in 1957 from Memphis High School in Memphis, Michigan and proudly went on to serve his country in the United States Marines Corps from 1957-1960, as a Lance Corporal. He met and married Patricia (Greene) Konyha. Together, they raised three beautiful children. Ralph resided in Atlanta since 2000 and was a member of the Atlanta Eagles. In his earlier years, he enjoyed hunting. At deer camp he was known as the cook.  He enjoyed fishing and camping with his children, his Dodge truck, and his passion for snowmobiling. Ralph is and will be deeply missed. We will all miss his stories and sarcasm. 

 Ralph loved to dance, and loved old country music, especially Reba. He received a life size cardboard poster of Reba from his granddaughter, Paula Finch, which have carried home on the plane. 

 Ralph is survived by his daughter, Beth Ann (Steve) Finch of Washington State; grandchildren, Jesse, Paula, Matthew, Nicholas, Shay, Aaron, Shane and Scott; great grandchildren Gwen, Bennett; son-in-law, AJ Davis of Imlay City; sisters, Charlotte Gay of Trenton; Katie Lange of Cleveland, Tennessee; several nieces and nephews; and good friends, Dan (Rose) Jakubiak of Wales, Jim (Nancy) Kammer. He was preceded in death by his parents, John and Irma Konyha; wife, Patricia; daughter, Kelly Davis; son, Kirt Konyha; granddaughter, Sarah; and several siblings.
