CITY OF CRYSTAL LAKE REMEMBERS COUNCILMAN RALPH DAWSON
Crystal Lake, IL – The City of Crystal Lake sadly announces the passing of Councilman Ralph Dawson, who died on Thursday, January 30, 2020 at the age of 90.
Dawson, who retired from the Crystal Lake City Council on January 21, 2020 after almost 21 years of service, will be greatly missed. Dawson also served on the Economic Development Committee from 1997 until his election to the City Council in 1999.
His impact can be seen throughout the City, as Dawson was an integral part of the renovation and construction of the Municipal Complex, and development of Three Oaks Recreation Area.
Dawson, who graduated from Crystal Lake Community High School, truly cared about Crystal Lake and its residents, and worked tirelessly to serve the community. As a City Councilmember, he strived to help Crystal Lake keep moving forward in a fiscally responsible manner, attracting and retaining business, industry and commercial development.
