"We are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of our dear friend and colleague, Chuck Colgan. Chuck was a true Virginia gentleman -- the last among us of the Greatest Generation -- who served his community with integrity and honor for over 70 years. He was an innovator and a pragmatist who never let partisan politics get in the way of moving Virginia forward. He has been a mentor to each and every one of us as we continue to strive to be better for the people of our great Commonwealth. The Colgan family is in our thoughts and prayers through this difficult time."
