Ralph Ira Burns
Birth: Feb. 4, 1917
Dawson County
Nebraska, USA
Death: Dec. 12, 1981
Dawson County

He was my grandfather.

During World War II, he could not serve because of polio damage received as a boy. As one of the few men left behind, he served as coach for all major sports in Overton, NE.

He married June Westerlin, ran his family grocery until his death, and raised two wonderful children.

Recipient of the Ak-Sar-Ben Good Neighbor Award.
