Former Pa. Lawmaker Terry Punt Dies At 60

WAYNESBORO, Pa. (AP) – A man who served as a Pennsylvania state lawmaker for 30 years has died.

Monday’s death of 60-year-old Terry Punt of Waynesboro was confirmed by the Grove-Bowersox Funeral Home in Waynesboro, which is handling arrangements.

The Republican started his service in the state Senate in 1989 after a decade in the state House of Representatives. He chose not to run for re-election in 2008, citing health concerns. His district at the end of his service included parts of Franklin, Adams and York counties.

Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati and Senate Majority Leader Dominic Pileggi released a written statement Monday calling Punt “a true statesman, a trusted colleague, and a good friend.’’
