TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Former Kansas Senate President Dick Bond has passed away.

Governor Laura Kelly says the former Kansas Senate President, Dick Bond, has passed away.

“I was deeply saddened to hear of the passing of my friend Dick Bond,” says Governor Kelly. “Dick’s leadership in the Senate was guided by his strong Kansas values, and his commitment to Kansas’ education system, improving health care, and working across the aisle served as a model for every member of the Legislature."

“Dick Bond dedicated his life to service, including more than a decade in the Kansas State Senate,” says Senator Jerry Moran. “He worked diligently behind the scenes on behalf of Kansans for decades before running for office himself, demonstrating his dedication to Kansas. Our state is a better place because of his public service, and I am a better person because of his friendship. Robba and I are saddened to hear of his passing and send our heartfelt prayers to his wife Sue and his family.”
