Sad news hit the Granville community just hours after the Sentinel went to press Tuesday morning with word Supervisor Rodger Hurley died.
At 70, Hurley was vital and energetic so that makes his death from a heart attack that much more shocking.
“Just months into his second term after winning a nail-biter election that came down to counting absentee ballots, Hurley called 911 about 8:30 a.m. complaining of chest pains. Hurley was taken by ambulance to Glens Falls Hospital by Granville EMS, but died en route, officials said.”
Looking back I’m not sure exactly how far he walked for instance on the town wide clean up day with the FFA in 2009, but I took his picture with Paul Klam out near Honey Hill.
Very hard to believe, shocking and sad.
