Rounds Remembers Former Governor Bill Janklow
Bill Janklow, Nov. 2011

One of the most well known and controversial leaders of our state, former Governor Bill Janklow, has died of brain cancer at the age of 72.

Many people will be remembering Janklow in the days and weeks ahead, including former Governor Mike Rounds.  He shared his memories of Janklow on Thursday's Midday in KELOLAND. 

“I just heard about the loss of Bill here about 20 minutes ago and it's very sad. I hope that he was at peace and he was comfortable in the last few hours," Rounds said.

Jankow was known as being an enthusiastic and passionate leader.

"He was interested in long-term major issues. There was always an air of excitement. There was always a chance to participate and to be involved. And if you were with him on a project, it was flat out making the plans, getting them in, getting them going. He was a driving force," Rounds said.

He always was willing to go the extra mile.

"He was very concerned about making sure he had done things correctly. And he would argue that the things he was doing were constitutionally correct," Rounds said.
