NEW YORK (AP) - Ralph Abraham, one of the New York City high school stars who went to St. John's in the 1960s, has died.
Abraham died Tuesday, three days before his 64th birthday, his family said.
He went from St. John's Prep to St. John's, where he played from 1968-70 with the Redmen compiling a 63-22 record in that span.
After graduation, Abraham moved to St. Croix, Virgin Islands, and stayed there until moving to Hampton, Va., in 1989, where he was an educator until retiring.
Abraham is survived by wife Harriet, five children and 11 grandchildren. His son, Faisal, played at Marquette from 1994-97 and daughter Tajama Abraham Ngongba is the women's head coach at Radford University.
A memorial service was held Saturday in Rockaway.
