Bill Janklow Dies At 72

Bill Janklow Dies At 72
Nov. 2011

SIOUX FALLS, SD - Former South Dakota Governor and Congressman Bill Janklow has died.

His son, Russ, tells the Associated Press his father has died at age 72.

In November, Bill Janklow announced he was battling inoperable brain cancer. He was moved into hospice earlier this week.

The combative Republican dominated South Dakota government for more than a quarter century, inspiring both fierce support and criticism. He was credited with saving railroad service in the state, attracting credit card banks to South Dakota, and connecting classrooms to the Internet.

Janklow was elected to the U.S. House in 2002, but he resigned after causing a fatal traffic accident in 2003.

KELOLAND News will have more coverage on Janklow's service to South Dakota throughout the day.
