He was a family friend and it is with heavy heart that we send Kenny Guinn on to his next journey. Here's hoping that he and my dad are having a drink together tonight at Heaven's Bar.
From the Associated Press:
Former Nevada Gov. Kenny Guinn, a two-term moderate Republican whose tenure marked a prosperous era in a state now facing severe budget problems, died Thursday after falling from the roof of his Las Vegas home while making repairs. He was 73.
The predecessor to current Gov. Jim Gibbons was pronounced dead at University Medical Center, where he was taken after the fall, Coroner Mike Murphy said. Authorities were investigating whether the death was from natural causes or an accident.
