Statements from area politicians on Dr. Otis Bowen

Posted:

"Doc Bowen was a great public servant and an important counselor to me and countless others, but he was much more: He was the living embodiment of the virtues we associate with our state - modesty,honesty, kindness. We have lost him, but I hope we never lose touch with the example he gave us in the way he led his life." - Former Governor Mitch Daniels

 

"Indiana lost a humble giant whose soft spoken, yet firm convictions influenced many Hoosiers, including me. The good doctor and good governor will long be remembered as an example of political leadership and human decency. Marsha and I extend our condolences and also our gratitude for his shining example of a life well-lived." - Senator Dan Coats

 

"Governor Otis Bowen was a man of integrity, an esteemed public servant and a lifelong leader. Hoosiers will always be proud of Governor Bowen's work for our nation and our great state, including his service in uniform during World War II. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Carol, his children, and grandchildren." - Congressman Marlin Stutzman

 

"I am deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Governor Otis Bowen.  During his incredible career, he touched the lives of Hoosiers across the state and Americans nationwide—demonstrating an unwavering commitment to public service.  A household name in Northern Indiana, Governor Bowen opened a family medical practice in Bremen after serving in World War II before moving on to the State House and later serving under President Ronald Reagan. 

"Governor Bowen was a trusted advisor to me in the State House, always delivering words of wisdom and kind guidance.  He will long be remembered for his humble nature and admirable passion to help others—qualities we should all strive to emulate.  Dean and I send our thoughts and prayers to with his wife, Carol, and their family during this difficult time"- Congresswoman Jackie Walorski
