INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - There was a memorial service in the Statehouse rotunda Thursday for former Governor Otis Bowen. Former governors Ed Whitcomb, Evan Bayh and Joe Kernan were all in attendance at the ceremony honoring Indiana's first two-term governor.
"The debt this state owes to Governor Otis R. Bowen can only be repaid by relentless imitation of his example," Governor Mike Pence told the audience, "and so on behalf of the people of Indiana we express our deepest sympathies."
Former Bowen aide Ray Rizzo also spoke.
"Doc let me in on his secret, his secret to success," said Rizzo, "by saying 'I just believe in letting other people have my way.' It's really very simple."
Bowen died earlier this month at the age of 95.
