Turzai Issues Statement on the Passing of Rep. Sid Kavulich
HARRISBURG – House Speaker Mike Turzai (R-Allegheny) released the following statement on the passing of Rep. Sid Kavulich (D-Lackawanna): 

“We are all deeply saddened at the loss of Rep. Kavulich. Rep. Kavulich was a gracious and thoughtful person and a legislator who was deeply committed to the constituents of the 114th District.  Further, he was a deeply spiritual gentleman, often giving the House of Representatives’ opening prayer.  

“Rep. Kavulich brought with him a long and successful career in broadcasting to the Capitol.  He covered all manner of sports topics as a broadcaster – and was also instrumental in having the Catholic Church broadcast masses and pilgrimages.  He was also formerly president of the Catholic Social Services of the Diocese of Scranton.  

“We will miss his kindness, his congeniality and his humble leadership.  Our thoughts and prayers are with Rep. Kavulich’s wife, Linda, and children, Loni, Ariel, and Zachary.”
