State Senator Joe Uecker (R-Miami Township) this evening issued the following statement on the passing of Ohio's former Chief of Wildlife Scott Zody:

"Ohio has lost an exceptional public servant and a highly respected voice for sportsmen today with the passing of Scott Zody. Scott's tenure with the Department of Natural Resources was marked by his extraordinary ability to bring people together, representing the diverse interests of the state's hunters, anglers and trappers. I was fortunate to have known Scott as a friend. He will be greatly missed."

Senator Uecker is chairman of the Ohio Legislative Sportsmen’s Caucus, a bipartisan caucus of state legislators that serves to promote outdoor recreational pursuits.
