Former Governor Bruce King Dies Today at Age 85

Our heart goes out to Gary and his family today. Bruce King and Alice King will be remembered fondly by all New Mexicans.

Statement From Attorney General Gary King on the News of his father's death:

"Bruce King would be the first one to tell us all that death is just another phase in the cycle of life and that we must go on with our lives trying to do the best we can while helping others make their way too. None of us in the family thought this day would come so soon after we lost my mom Alice King, but we are comforted by the thought that Bruce and Alice can be together once again."

Congressman Heinrich had this to say:

“Bruce King will always be one of our greatest New Mexicans. Governor King was so kind, and he served the state in so many ways. He will truly be missed. When you think of New Mexico, you think of Bruce King. Julie and I send our thoughts and prayers to the entire King family.”
