Ralph Howard Causey of Seaford passed away peacefully and went home in the arms of Jesus surrounded by his loving family after a brief battle with cancer on Oct. 15, 2020. Born in Baltimore, Md., he is the son of the late Douglas Causey and Lucille Hickman Causey.
Ralph was a member of Centenary United Methodist Church in Laurel, where he was an active member of the choir and loved to sing his gospel music with the Centenarians, and for years was a member of the Epworth Quartet. He was retired from E. I. Dupont Company in 1992 after 30 years of service, and after retirement he owned Capitol Billard’s in Dover, De., for 12 years. He loved the game of golf and watching Tiger Woods. Ralph also enjoyed watching the Colts and Peyton Manning and was a die hard Colts fan even after they left Baltimore. His other hobbies included: bowling for DuPont Bowling League, playing pool in Dagsboro, and he was known to be very competitive. His most treasured love was his family and grandchildren, and his vacations at the Massanutten Resort in Virginia.
