State Capitol– Senator Barbara McGuire released the following statement on the death of Senator Chester Crandell:
“I am deeply saddened by the passing of Senator Chester Crandell, who was not only a colleague but a friend.
“Being a rancher, Chester and I shared many moments talking about breaking horses and whose methods worked better – his or mine. We also shared strategy and advice in dealing with legislation. I will cherish those memories.
“His sudden passing is a sad moment for his family, whom he loved and adored, and the state of Arizona, which he served with honor and grace.”
