Governor Sanders’ Statement on the Passing of Former Representative Marion Berry

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – GovernorSarah Huckabee Sanders released the following statement on the passing of former U.S. Representative Robert Marion Berry (AR-01):

“Bryan and I are saddened to learn that former Representative Marion Berry has passed away. A son of the Delta, Marion was a farmer and a statesman, whose mix of homespun wisdom and hard-won political knowledge always made him a formidable representative for our state. His work took him to Washington and around the country, but Arkansas and his family farm were always home. I know that every Arkansan he served admired his loyalty to our state. I extend my deepest condolences to Carolyn and the entire Berry family in this difficult time.”
