Much beloved former Rep. Tom Uher passed away at age 81

Predecessor and mentor to Speaker Dennis Bonnen known for good cheer and called all, "a great American"

Visitation will be at Taylor Brothers Funeral Home in Bay City from 5-7 PM, Wednesday, March 13, 2019 with the funeral the following day at the First Presbyterian Church of Bay City at 3PM.

I considered Tom Uher a personal friend and, in fact, a friend to virtually anyone he met.

His trademark was to conclude each conversation, with "You are a great American."

He was Speaker Pro Tempore from the 73rd through the 77th Sessions and it gave all who knew him great pride and pleasure that when elected and sworn in, Speaker Dennis Bonnen invited Tom, honored him and particular pointed out the role he played in his own life during his acceptance speech.

To be so acknowledged two decades after serving was unique and special – HK
