I grew up in Fairport, NY and now my family enjoys sharing the same community I am very fond of. My wife Kelly grew up in Michigan and enjoys her career at RIT. Our 3 children attend Fairport schools and certainly keep us busy with all their activities. During the winter months you will also see me at Bristol Mountain as a member of the Ski Patrol. As we all look forward to the summertime, I always enjoy getting out on the water at Conesus Lake, or hopping on a bike and cruising the towpath.

One fun fact is our General Manager, Zac Ralph, worked for me when he was in college at Shadow Pines and Shadow Lake Golf Clubs. The Ralph’s have a great organization to work for with a true family feel. We take pride in making our customers feel comfortable as they join the Ralph Honda spirit. I make the daily trek from Fairport while driving a Honda Clarity and it would be worth your time to take the extra few minutes to come see us. Keep us in mind at Ralph Honda for your next vehicle and come see the excitement!fa709668-b564-4156-9908-be8b7707c641.png
