Obituary for Ralph Outerbridge

Ralph Outerbridge was born on November 8, 1956 in New York, New York at Harlem Hospital. He was one of three children of the late Gloria and George Maxwell.

Ralph, also known as “P-Phunck,” grew up in the Bronx where he attended PS 154 Elementary School, Elijah D. Clark Junior High School and then on to Morris High School where he received the highest score on the regent’s exam for the whole county of the Bronx. With that honor, Ralph earned a full scholarship to Howard University. He worked at Columbia University then in 1982 he was employed at the New York City Transit Authority for 36 years until retiring due to his failing health. He was a member of Local TWU #100.

In the early years Ralph was married in 1980 and from that union two children were born, Olivia Shquawn and Ralph Terrell. Then in 1991 Ralph was united with his childhood friend and life partner, Renee Gilgeours for twenty eight years and to that union Quincy Jay was born.

Ralph loved playing chess, grilling in the backyard of the family home or in the park, and tailgating during football games. He was an avid New York Giants and New York Mets fan and loved hosting Superbowl gatherings and cookouts at the family home where he was usually the grill master. He also loved watching movies with his family.
