    Clifton Lynam Ginn was born January 24, 1929, in Elkton, Maryland, to Fred and Agnes (Atwell) Ginn. He was raised on the family farm. In September of 1947, Clif enlisted in the United States Air Force serving as a B29, B36 and B52 tail gunner and also as an instructor. While serving in the military, he earned his bachelor’s degree from UNO and his master’s degree from USC. He retired as a Chief Master Sgt. in August of 1968.
    Following retirement, Clif and his family moved to Wayne where he taught Political Science at WSC until his retirement in May of 1987. He was a Wayne City Council member from 1977-1980. As an active member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Clif devoted his time to the service of others and the study of theology.
    His legacy of love includes Toni, his wife of 61 years, and his children, Rick (Jane) Ginn of Omaha; Mike (Laura) Ginn of San Clemente, CA; MaryAnn (Randy) Lutt of Wayne; Tom (Lori) Ginn of Omaha; and Teresa (Kevin) Kay of Wayne. His grandchildren are Joe (Karen) Lutt, Katie (Dave) Brown, John Ginn, Gail Ginn, Amy (Levi) Schmidt, Mike Kay, Patrick (Sandra) Ginn, James Ginn, and Michelle Ginn.
