GREENFIELD, Ind. – The mayor of a central Indiana city has died after suffering a recurrence of liver cancer.
The family of Greenfield Mayor Dick Pasco earlier said he was under hospice care at home since being released from a hospital Friday for treatment of dehydration and pain.
The Daily Reporter reports (http://bit.ly/1e3mY36) Greenfield Board of Works member Brent Lawson announced Pasco’s death during a board meeting Tuesday.
A statement from Pasco’s family on Monday said he had decided against further cancer treatment.
The 66-year-old had been suffering liver problems since soon before his 2011 election to lead the 20,000-person city about 15 miles east of Indianapolis. He first underwent liver cancer treatment 14 years ago.
