O’Connor Distributing is deeply saddened by the loss of Ralph S. O’Connor.  Mr. O’Connor’s roots run deep in the beer business as one of the first Coor’s distributors in Houston.  He later became a partner with M&A Distributing in Palestine Tx, before purchasing the Miller distributorship, White River Beverage, in 1993 with his son which has flourished into O’Connor Distributing.  Ralph will be remembered for the wisdom he passed down and his influential role in mentoring his son and grandson in the ways of the beer business.  The multiplier effect from his contributions and insights to the beer business, as well as the community have had an enduring impact on future generations.

Ralph’s legacy will live on at O’Connor Distributing.
