FRANKFORT (Sept. 30, 2022) – Commissioner of Agriculture Dr. Ryan Quarles issued the following statement upon learning about the passing of Sen. C.B. Embry.
“I’m saddened to learn about the passing of Sen. C.B. Embry, a dedicated public servant to the state of Kentucky having served more than 50 continuous years in the public sector. His dedication to the people of Kentucky saw him continue to travel to Frankfort and cast votes even during his courageous battle with cancer.
“He was a true professional in all he did, serving time as mayor, judge executive, state representative, and state senator. I had the honor to serve with him in the House of Representatives. He was known to be an early riser and extremely kind person. All who knew him will miss this unique statesman. My prayers are with his family during this difficult time."
