Chief Justice Mark Cady was remembered during a Celebration of Life ceremony earlier today (Nov. 20) at the Knapp Center on the Drake University campus, after passing away unexpectedly on Friday. View the Chief Justice's full obituary here.

"We have lost an extraordinary person," said ISBA President Bill Boyd. "Chief Justice Cady was a friend to all. We as Iowans greatly benefited from his service as a jurist and as the chief justice of our state. His outstanding contributions on the court and his integrity as a leader strengthened Iowa. We will miss him greatly and extend our thoughts and prayers to Becky and the family."

The chief justice's family requested that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to The Iowa State Bar Foundation for purposes of creating a Judicial Learning Center in the Judicial Branch building. Click here to learn more about this project. Donations can be made online through this link.
