Ralph Linn Hampton
Ralph Linn Hampton, 56, of Hyannis, Nebraska went to be with The Lord, on September 6, 2020.
Ralph was born December 31, 1963 in Alliance, Nebraska to Kenneth and Lois (Carson) Hampton. Ralph spent his younger years living all over the Sandhills and working with his family on many different ranches. Ralph graduated from Hyannis High School in 1982.
Ralph’s biggest passion in life was welding. In 1999 he bought his first welding business which he operated until 2018. Ralph was a member of the Nebraska Blacksmiths Welders and Machinist Association.
Ralph’s greatest joy in life was his family and friends. Especially his newest additions of two grandchildren this past winter. Whether it be an in-person visit or a video call, Ralph was always there for those who needed him. Often, he would share words of wisdom with those around him, followed by a joke to make them laugh.
Ralph was very passionate about his daughters, he always made time for their functions during High school and was their biggest supporter.
Ralph also enjoyed spending time with his girlfriend, Linda Coupens of 5 years and his best dog, Red. Going on walks was there time to spend with God in the peace and serenity of the Sandhills. He enjoyed fishing, operating big machinery, crafting unique things and always enjoyed a good 80’s Rock song.
Ralph is preceded in death by his father and grandparents.
Ralph is survived by his mother Lois Hampton of Bayard, daughters Kayla (Dakota) Osmera of Big Springs and Alyssa Hampton of Chadron, his sister Kay Freeburg of Bayard, brother Melvin of Bayard and brother Gary (Kendra) Hampton of Scottsbluff; grandchildren Paisley McCance and Luke Osmera, partner Linda Coupens of Alliance; as well as many loving nieces and nephews, cousins, family and friends.
