Former St. Cloud City Council Member and Korean War Veteran John Rallis, who served on the council for four, 2-year terms: 1990-91, and from 1998 through 2003 has passed away.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends. We will announce information on arrangements when it becomes available.
