(DES MOINES) – Gov. Terry E. Branstad today issued the following statement upon learning of the passing of Wall Lake native Andy Williams:

“Andy Williams was an Iowa treasure. Andy’s beautiful voice and musical talents were rare gifts, and rather than keep that treasure to himself, he shared it with the world and made it a better place. Andy was a great ambassador for the state of Iowa, and we are all proud to call him a native son. Andy’s voice may be silenced, but his notes will forever live on. Chris and I send our thoughts and prayers to his family, friends and fans as we remember this great Iowan.”
