HARRISBURG (CBS) – Governor Tom Corbett and First Lady Susan Corbett made the following statement after learning about the tragic and untimely passing of Lewis Katz:

“Sue and I are shocked and saddened by the tragic death of our friend, Lewis Katz. His personal warmth, wisdom, and strength of character make his passing a great loss, and his life and friendship a greater treasure.
