Dear Mrs. Scranton and Family:

Please accept sympathy on Ambassador Scranton's passing. He was a great Governor and an outstanding UN Ambassador under President Ford. He would have been a great running mate for Senator Goldwater in 1964 or for President Ford in 1976. I remember that picture of the President congratulating him on the appointment--President Ford smiling because he knew he had made such a good choice, and Ambassador Scranton smiling because he was glad to have the chance to serve. I am a Republican because of men like President Ford and Governor Scranton.

Sincerely,

Kenneth Hamilton
Sumter, S. C.

Governor Scranton was in my Italian 101 class at the University of Scranton in the fall of 1988. He was such a pleasant, kind gentleman who treated even us 18 year old kids with respect. He left a lasting impression of how people should treat each other.

Sympathy & kindest regards to the Scranton family & very many friends wherever they may be. God bless 1 & all. Take care. Dr. George Wolf was a distinguished professor at Lock Haven State Teachers College & wrote the biography of Gov. Scranton some time ago. I started college in the summer of 1965. It's food for thought in this day & age, but my parents paid $150/semester. One of my regrets was that Dr. Wolf had moved on from the Woolrich tennis courts to Harrisburg & the Scranton Governor's office; therefore I barely missed the privilege of having Dr. Wolf as one of my professors. Folks like Gov. Scranton, Dick Thornburgh, Fran Barry, George Pott, Sr., Bob Fohl & so very many others among the best & the brightest served in the PA Constitutional Convention & made a great difference in Pennsylvania Government.

Joe,
I'm sorry for your loss. I worked with you at KTWU in the 80s. Although I was in junior high, I remember your father well, as I'm from San Francisco, & my parents attended the 1964 GOP convention there. He was a great man, & his campaign was well organized. My prayers to your family.

My condolences to the Scranton Family and strength for Mr Scranton's wife. She no doubt depended on him in the Nursing facility.
I had recently been reading the history online of this city I now call home.

To the Scranton family, I am so sorry for your loss

William Scranton should have been President. He was smart, level headed, and a decent human being. Americans and the world missed a golden opportunity!!!
