A little Humphrey Insurance nostalgia… Both of Ralph’s parents Ralph and Christina Humphrey graduated Ashtabula High School. His father graduated in 1925 and his mother in 1928. Ralph’s father was expected to farm but the depression came along and his father became a milk tester. Ralph’s father had also attended Ohio State for one year.
Ralph’s mother went to business college for a year after high school. She grew up in Saybrook on Shepard Road. She was a good friend of his father’s sister Eunice. Ralph suspects that’s how his parents met through his aunt.
Ralph’s parents were married in 1933. Ralph’s brother John was born first being twenty-one months older than Ralph. Ralph was born in Westerville while his father was a milk tester in the Columbus area.
Ralph’s parents decided to move back to Ashtabula in 1935 and start an insurance agency. His father was the sixth agent for the Grange Mutual Casualty Insurance Company. Up to now the Humphrey’s have been with that company for over seventy-five years.
