ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A former New Mexico Supreme Court judge is dead at age 89.

The Albuquerque Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1IKqDAv) that Harry Stowers died Wednesday morning.

His widow says Stowers was in a car crash in June 2014 and doctors who treated him discovered he had cancer.

Joyce Stowers says her husband ultimately died of complications from the disease.

Harry Stowers was a native New Mexican who served on the state Supreme Court from 1982 to 1989.

He previously worked as a prosecutor and city attorney in Albuquerque, as a judge in the 2nd Judicial District and an attorney in private practice.

After leaving the Supreme Court, Stowers was elected mayor of the Village of Los Ranchos for one term.

Besides his wife, he’s survived by two daughters, one son and a sister.
