State Rep Nelson Starkey Passes Away

Longtime State Rep Nelson Starkey (D - Florence) died yesterday after losing his battle against prostate cancer. Starkey had been in the House since 1978 and was a leader in the areas of education and highway funding.

His colleagues praised his character and career:

"He will be missed in the House, where he worked hard to represent his constituents,'' [Bob]Riley said in a statement. "He was a patriot who served his
country in the military, and we are grateful for his service. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Anne, and their children at this time.''

"His personal effort to increase funding for public schools kept the issue at the forefront of legislative debate for many years,'' [Seth]Hammett said. "In addition, his efforts to improve Alabama's highway infrastructure led to safer roadways and enhanced economic development for all our citizens.''

State Sen. Bobby Denton, D-Muscle Shoals, who served with Starkey virtually his entire legislative career, remembered Starkey as a "gentleman and public servant.''"Nelson was known by all throughout the legislature, even in the Senate,'' Denton said. "You can't say that about everybody.''

"He was the best example of what a public servant ought to be,'' [Lynn]Greer said. "You never had an argument with Nelson, you never had a disagreement, you could work out any problem.''
Starkey's funeral will be held Saturday in Florence.
