Statements from officials on the death of former South Dakota Gov. Walter Dale Miller

“Kimberley’s and my thoughts and prayers are with former Gov. Miller’s family and friends. Gov. Miller served during a difficult time in our state’s history, but thanks to his service, South Dakota is a better place. I consider it an honor and a privilege to have called him my friend during his long tenure of service to our state.”

- U.S. Sen. John Thune, R-S.D.

“Jean and I send our deepest sympathies to Pat and the Miller family as they deal with this tragic loss. Walt was a longtime friend and mentor who led our state through a difficult time. His love of South Dakota and legacy of public service is one we can all admire. Our thoughts and prayers will continue to be with the Millers.”

- U.S. Sen. Mike Rounds, R-S.D.

“Gov. Miller was a friend and I will miss him. Walter Dale Miller assumed the governorship at a time of tragedy and sorrow. He provided a steady hand as our state mourned the loss of Gov. Mickelson. Through his long career in public office, Walt worked hard and put South Dakota first. Linda and I express our deepest sympathies to Pat and the entire Miller family.”

- South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard

“I have lost more than my Governor and home town legislator, as have so many South Dakotans I have lost a true friend.”

- South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley
