INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - - Former U.S. Sen. Dick Lugar says Otis "Doc" Bowen couldn't refuse to serve.
Lugar issued a statement Sunday mourning the loss of the former two-term Indiana governor and Health and Human Services secretary under President Reagan. The 95-year-old Bowen died Saturday night in a northern Indiana nursing home.
Lugar says, "Whether it was a call from a patient, a constituent, or his country, Doc could not refuse to serve."
He calls Bowen "the best example of public leader in our state and nation because of his demeanor, intellect, wisdom and range of abilities that brought achievement and success to everything he did."
