Senator Lisa Baker: Statement on the passing of former Governor William Scranton

Governor Scranton deserves to be remembered as both a great man and a good man.  He compiled an extraordinary record of service to the nation, state, region, and community, always ready for the next request or challenge.  He had an exceptional memory for people, places, and events.

His leadership, integrity, and personable nature set him apart.  I always found him to be gracious, thoughtful, and kind.  He talked with you, never down to you or past you, and gave the impression he was deeply interested in what you had to say.  He was inspirational in many ways, and above all distinguished by his life-long passion for learning.
