Rep. Yarmuth Statement on Passing of Judge John Heyburn

WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman John Yarmuth (KY-3) issued the following statement on the passing of U.S. Senior District Judge John G. Heyburn II:

“With his quick wit and even quicker intellect, Judge Heyburn tirelessly served the people of our Commonwealth for decades. He was the embodiment of compassion and the very definition of judicial independence, a warm and caring person who always spoke with a level of thoughtfulness and honesty that earned him the respect of everyone he knew, inside the courtroom and out. I am proud to have called John a dear friend, and my thoughts and prayers are with Martha and their two sons.”
