Jon E. Ralston, 51, restoration artist, enjoyed travel, spending time with family, friends
Jon E. Ralston, 51, of Lititz, passed away Tuesday, June 17, 2014 at his residence.

Jon loved to water-ski, liked to travel to destinations such as Italy and Greece and loved animals. He enjoyed the performing and fine arts and was the founder of the Hope & Strength support group in Lancaster. He especially enjoyed spending time with his family and closest friends.
In addition to his parents, he is survived and will be missed by his sister: Jan Frailey of Lancaster; his brother: Jeff married to Rebecca Ralston of Telford’ his nieces: Kristi Frailey and Sarah Ralston; and his nephew: Tim Frailey; as well as his extended family.
Private services were held at the convenience of his family.
