Former Governor Foss Dies

Former South Dakota Gov. Joe Foss died Wednesday afternoon at a hospital in Scottsdale, Ariz. He was 87.

Gov. Bill Janklow says Foss had not regained consciousness after he suffered an apparent aneurysm last fall.

Janklow says he doesn't know where Foss will be buried but says the World War II hero had always told him he wanted to be buried at Arlington Cemetery.

Foss served as governor from 1955 to 1959. He was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for his heroics during the war.
