Richard Brown, a North Dakota state senator from 2002 to 2006, died Saturday at age 70 in his Fargo home.

The Republican represented District 27 and lost the seat to Jim Pomeroy in 2006.

"He was intelligent and a good decision-maker," District 46 Sen. Tom Fischer said. Brown was "highly respected by both sides of the aisle."

District 13 Sen. Judy Lee said he will be "very much missed."

"He was just a very outward-looking person," Lee said. "He knew a lot about business. He knew a lot about health care. He knew a lot about the kinds of services a community needs in order to be the kind of vibrant, vital, serving community we'd all like to live in."
