Donald Dean Kral, 86, was born on December 23, 1931 to Edward and Lula Kral. He was a lifelong resident of Bladen, NE and served his country in the Korean war. He departed this life on October 3, 2018, at Mary Lanning Healthcare after a valiant battle with COPD.
He married Letha Leestch on September 13, 1960. To this union, 2 children were born, Angela Dea and Mitchel Steven. They were blessed with 10 grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren. Don took great joy in all of his family and vowed to see at least one of his great grandchildren graduate. Fate dealt him a different hand.
Don was a very devoted Husker fan and will be coaching from the sidelines even now!
