Paul Cowden passed away September 23, 2012. He had suffered from Multiple Sclerosis (MS).
Paul lived in Mount Sterling, Kentucky with his wife Suzanne. After Williams, he received his law degree from Vanderbilt. After a period in private practice, he switched to the public sector. He had a remarkable career serving Montgomery County as its County Attorney from 1978 until his retirement in 2006. He was twice named County Attorney of the Year by the Kentucky Attorney General. He was also named Distinguished Citizen of the Year in 2007 by the Mount Sterling Chamber of Commerce. He was Chairman of the Board of Mary Chiles Hospital and was President of the Mount Sterling Rotary Club.
Besides his wife Suzanne, Paul is survived by two daughters Kelly Rehm Cowden and Lucy Spalding Cowden. Paul was a well liked and much respected classmate, and we will certainly and sorrowfully miss him.
