Sioux Falls, SD-Senator Tim Johnson and his wife Barbara mourn the passing of Senator George McGovern.
Barbara and I are saddened by the news of Senator George McGovern’s passing. He was a dear friend to both of us throughout the years. George was a compassionate man with a truly deep devotion to public service. Whether it was serving as a bomber pilot in World War II, as an international leader in fighting hunger, as a talented teacher, or as Senator, he served with uncompromising values and commitment.
His leadership inspired many, including myself. He will be missed by countless people across South Dakota and the world, but mostly by the family that he loved. Our thoughts and prayers are with the McGovern family.
