Montana Democrats’ Statement on the Passing of John Melcher


Helena—Today, Montana Democratic Party Executive Director Nancy Keenan released the following statement on the passing of Senator John Melcher:

“Senator John Melcher was a Montana giant, a tireless public servant whose dedication to Montana was equaled only by the vastness of the Big Sky he loved so much. A country boy to his bones, John always made sure the voices of Montana’s farmers and ranchers were heard and respected, from the Forsyth City Council to the United States Senate.

“We’ve lost a friend, a relentless advocate for Montana’s working families, a decorated World War II hero, and a great man. But we are blessed that John’s legacy lives on through all he accomplished for our state and that his achievements will serve as towering monuments to one of Montana’s greatest statesmen for generations to come.”

The funeral will be held on April 24th in Forsyth. More information can be found here.
