During the state House session Wednesday, Brookfield State Representative David Scribner called for a moment of silence in honor of Lou Rell, the husband of former Governor Jodi Rell, who died Saturday in Florida.
Scribner said Lou Rell was probably best known in the state as the proud partner of Governor Jodi Rell. He said Lou's devotion, strength and unwavering support of her gave the former Governor the reassurance to capably lead the state. He often avoided the limelight, but was often seen by his wife's side during her tenure
Lou Rell was 73 and had battled cancer. The Rell family said funeral arrangements are being made final, with services to be in Connecticut.
