WASHINGTON – Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) today issued the
following statement regarding the death of his friend and former colleague,
Senator Mike Enzi of Wyoming:
Senator Mike Enzi was a loving family man and dedicated public servant. Through
decades of friendship and service, I was privileged to learn from Mike. He
cared about the future of our country in every way and kept a sharp eye on
Congress’ fiscal responsibilities. Barbara and I often joined Mike and his
wife, Diana, and members of Mike’s staff at their weekly Tortilla Coast dinner.
I don’t often socialize in Washington but I made an exception for Mike and
Diana. Mike loved to share stories about fishing back home in Wyoming, life before
Congress running his family shoe store and above all else his family. He
cheered his family on every step of the way.
“Barbara and I send our condolences to Diana and
the Enzi family and friends. May God bless our friend, Mike Enzi.”
