Ipswich Cardinals unfortunately have extremely sad news to report. We are devastated to report that Cardinals Owner & General Manager Ralph Alexander has passed away peacefully.
Ralph was 'Mr. Cardinals' and ran the Cardinals for many, many years - he was well loved and the head of the Cardinals family. He will be a massive loss to the Cardinals organisation and to all who had the pleasure of meeting him.
Our thoughts and love are with Jan and with his family and loved ones.
Cardinals Deputy GM Steve Hawes said, "We are shocked and devastated to wake up this morning with the news of the loss of Ralph. I can't really put into words how much of a friend and mentor Ralph has been since I joined the Cardinals. The Cardinal organisation sends sincere condolences to the Alexander family. I already miss him and will always fondly remember the times we had organising matches, Cardinals events, travelling to games, and Ralph being in my and my family's life. We should all feel privileged to have known him."
