State Senator Dies 05 Mar 12


State Senator Gary Kubly of Granite Falls has died.

Senate Minority Leader Tom Bakk says Kubly’s family told him the senator died Friday. The 68-year-old senator was diagnosed with ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s Disease, last year. He was hospitalized in St. Paul last week after suffering cardiac-like symptoms. Kubly was also a Lutheran minister who often led the senate in its opening prayer.
