Former U.S. Senator and owner of the Milwaukee Bucks Herb Kohl has died at the age of 88.

Now, countless individuals have come forward to comment on just how missed Kohl will be.

"Senator Kohl was a dear friend and one of our very best public servants. In addition to his decades of devoted service in the U.S. Senate, he set the standard for NBA team ownership as the governor of his hometown, Milwaukee Bucks, for nearly 30 years," said NBA Commissioner Adam Silver.

Tony Evers, the governor of Wisconsin, also shared a heartfelt sentiment.

"Sen. Kohl was deeply committed to community, kindness, and service to others. Wisconsin’s seniors, students, teachers, and schools, and farmers and rural areas, among so many others, are better off because of his life and legacy, the impacts of which will last for generations,” Evers said in a recent statement.

No matter how you felt about Kohl’s political viewpoints, you must admit he cared about his community and spent his entire life trying to make a difference.

We pray for peace and comfort for all the family, friends, and loved ones grieving Kohl’s absence.
