DENVER — Minority Leader John Cooke (R – Greeley) has issued the following statement regarding the sudden passing of Representative Hugh McKean.

“We are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Rep. Hugh McKean. Hugh was a leader, a friend, and a good man. He never made politics personal, but instead always greeted everyone with a warm smile and an open hand. With his sincere nature and honest approach, he taught everyone what it means to be a statesman. His passion for his family, his community, and the state of Colorado were exemplary.  We are praying for his family and offer them our deepest condolences and any support we can give. We will miss Hugh McKean greatly.”
