In 1965, Ralph and his father Al created a business partnership and acquired the automotive business called Danner Collision. They built the business into a very successful operation. Since then, Ralph has been very fortunate to have his two sons, Ralph Jr and Andrew, follow in his footsteps and join the automotive business. Several years ago he turned the business over to his sons. Although not yet ready to retire, Ralph still continues to work there as well.
