Son of Arthur J. & Obeline (Bourque) Turgeon. In 1900 he was living with his family (mother widowed) at 67 Main Street, Dover NH. Siblings included Arthur E., Wilfred, Henry, Albert, and Arthur E.

Ralph served as a Corporal in Co. C., 103 Infantry, 26th Div (Yankee Division). His service is attributed to Concord NH, and his name is on the WWI plaque there.

Ralph was reburied in Sacred Heart Cemetery, Laconia, NH. A military marker was ordered for his final resting place.
