Dr. Ralph H. Brancaccio, a retired radiologist who lived on Bayview Terrace in the Southampton Shores section of North Sea, died on May 25 at home. He was 96.
Dr. Brancaccio had been in solo practice for more than 40 years, after receiving degrees from Columbia University and the Long Island College of Medicine. He was a member of the Bay Ridge Medical Society, the Brooklyn Radiological Society, and the American College of Radiology peer review board. During his career, he was awarded a fellowship from the American College of Radiology.
In recent years Howard Dickinson of Water Mill and his wife, Sharon Lingwood Dickinson, traveled from Maine to Florida for Mini Cooper events. Her purchase of one of the sporty little cars in 2007 had turned him into an enthusiast.
The couple also organized their own rallies, including a scavenger hunt, Minis Hunt the Hamptons. They put together one called Hamptons Drive Out Hunger to benefit the Southampton Food Pantry.
