Gov. Walker shares condolences for Gov. Lucey's family

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) -- Gov. Scott Walker released the following statement after hearing former Gov. Patrick Lucey passed away this weekend.

"Tonette and I extend our thoughts and prayers to the family of Governor Patrick Lucey. It was a particular joy to be with him last summer for the 40th anniversary of Kikkoman in Fontana. Governor Lucey was a dedicated public servant who loved Wisconsin," Walker said in a statement.

Lucey's family announced the former governor died late Saturday after battling a brief illness.

Lucey was elected governor in 1970 and was re-elected in 1974 but left part of the way through that term to serve as the U.S. Ambassador to Mexico.
