Former State Sen. Kay Cornaby Dies at 77
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Kay Cornaby, who was known as a compassionate conservative during his 13 years in the Utah state Senate, died Monday after a long illness. He was 77.

Former colleagues say Cornaby was strong on conservative and social values.

The Salt Lake City Republican pushed for prison expansion even as he criticized the Utah Department of Corrections for being quick to lock up parole violators.

Cornaby was the Senate's majority leader in 1983-84 and considered a gubernatorial run before making way for fellow Republican Norman Bangerter, who went on to serve two terms.

He was a patent and intellectual-property attorney who earned a law degree from Harvard and worked for a Salt Lake City law firm. He leaves behind a wife, Linda, and five children.
