Davis Statement on Passing of Former Illinois Congressman Paul Findley
U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Ill.) today released this statement on the passing of former Illinois Congressman Paul Findley.
“Paul was a loyal friend and mentor to so many of us in Illinois politics,” said Davis. “I last had the privilege of seeing Paul when I was added to the former Illinois College students’ wall at the Findley Congressional Office Museum. His dedication to Illinois College and the entire Jacksonville community was immeasurable. Paul’s work to further agriculture, his love for Abraham Lincoln, and willingness to stand up for what he believed in are just some of the qualities I admired most about Paul. Paul’s service and positive impact on Illinois politics will be long lasting. My thoughts and prayers are with his children and family as they mourn this great loss.”
