A seven-term member of the Alabama Senate, W.H. "Pat" Lindsey of Butler, has died. He was 72.
Lindsey was found dead in his bed Sunday morning while on a hunting trip in Boligee in west Alabama. State Sen. Roger Bedford and Lt. Gov. Jim Folsom Jr., who were also on the trip, said Lindsey was found in his bed when the others started preparing to leave from a home of friends who had invited them hunting.
Folsom said Lindsey was in good spirits the previous evening and showed no signs of any pain.
Gov. Bob Riley said Lindsey's leadership will be missed.
Funeral arrangements are pending.
