from Allentown Morning Call:
Former Gov. William W. Scranton died Sunday in Santa Barbara, Calif.
Mr. Scranton, 96, died of a cerebral hemorrhage at about 9 p.m. Eastern time, said Linda Keene, his assistant for 43 years.
“It was very peaceful and simple,” Mrs. Keene said. “There was no pain.”
Mr. Scranton will be cremated in California and his remains will be returned to the area for a service, Mrs. Keene said. No arrangements have been completed yet, she said.
U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) released the following statement:
“Kris and I send our prayers to the family of former Governor Bill Scranton. From the time he left Yale Law School to enlist in the U.S. Army Air Corps during World War II, to his service as Ambassador to the United Nations, his was a life dedicated to the service of our great commonwealth and our country.”
