JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Former state Sen. Carl Vogel, a local Coca-Cola Bottling Co. president who served for 20 years in the Missouri Legislature, has died after a year-long battle with cancer.

Vogel’s daughter, Kristen Vogel, said her father died Thursday night at Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis from complications of pancreatic cancer. He was 61.

Vogel, of Jefferson City, first was elected to the Missouri House in 1990. He won election to the Senate in 2002 and served until term limits ended his legislative career in 2011.

He became president of the family’s Coca-Cola bottling company in 1983, and frequently served and displayed Coca-Cola products at his legislative office.

He also was a past chairman of the Jefferson City Chamber of Commerce.
