Blunt Statement on the Passing of Hank Waters

August 20, 2020

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.) released the following statement on the passing of Hank Waters, former Editor and Publisher of the Columbia Daily Tribune:

“Missouri will miss Hank Waters. He had a great appreciation for and understanding of our state. From our first meeting four decades ago to our last decade working together on the board of the State Historical Society of Missouri, Hank always made any conversation more interesting. He had a disproportional impact running a family newspaper that other editors paid attention to. In my political efforts, Hank endorsed me at least two-thirds of the time, but was my friend 100% of the time.”
