Sen. Jerry Moran Statement on Death of Barton County Commissioner Don Cates

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) issued the following statement today upon learning of the death of Barton County Commissioner Don Cates. Commissioner Cates, a decorated military hero, husband and father, died Tuesday when his aerial spraying plane crashed in Pawnee County.

“My heart goes out to the entire Cates family during this difficult time,” said Sen. Moran. “Don was a devoted husband, father and grandfather. Both he and his wife Ginger are well known in the Barton County for their dedication to keeping the community a great place to live and work. Don was a true role model and his generous spirit will be greatly missed. I ask all Kansans to join me and Robba in keeping Don’s family and friends in their thoughts and prayers in the days ahead.”
