SALT LAKE CITY May 4, 2016 – Attorney General Sean D. Reyes released the following statement on the passing of former Senator Bob Bennett:
“We are saddened by the passing of Senator Bob Bennett. He was a giant in many respects; a tremendous, public servant who used his significant intellect, business experience and deep compassion for humanity to represent our great state and work across the aisle on complex issues during tumultuous times. Utah mourns.
“On a personal note, I have known Bob Bennett and his family since I was very young. He was always a family man, a spiritual man, a great husband, father and American. He encouraged me to run for office on the premise that one of the greatest sacrifices we can make is serving our fellow-man in the public square.
“We extend our condolences to the entire Bennett family for their loss.”
