Former U.S. Senator James Abdnor in hospice care

Former U.S Senator James Abdnor is in hospice care in Sioux Falls according to the family’s attorney. Vance Goldammer says has been receiving hospice care since noon Sunday.

He says doctors believe the former South Dakota Senator and Lieutenant Governor is in his final stages of life. Goldammer says the Republican is resting comfortably and is still communicating. He also receives daily visits from his nieces and nephews.

Goldammer says Abdnor fell and smashed a shoulder, last Fall, which affected him physically and led to the decline of his health.

  1. I am saddened to hear of the death of Jim Abnor. When I was a young girl in Kennebec, SD, I had a very best friend, and her dad was in politics, so I was at many events and saw Jim Abnor on several occasions. I always loved his big smiles and his brown eyes !!
