About this Article

Geneva 5th Ward Alderman Ralph Dantino died Monday, as a result of the cancer he had fought for several years. "He was concerned about those who maybe didn't have a voice. He was a good neighbor and a good friend," said fellow Alderman Dean Kilburg. And "Dancing With the Geneva Stars" organizer Carolyn Hill called him an inspiration, fulfilling his commitment even when he had just gotten out of the hospital. "I think that is just how he was," she said.
