House Minority Leader Scott Inman, D-Del City, released the following statement:

"I am so saddened to learn that a colleague and a friend, Rep. David Brumbaugh, has passed suddenly. David was a good man with a heart for Christ. While we didn't agree on a variety of issues, he was always respectful and sincere in his beliefs and his dealings with my caucus and me.  On behalf of my entire caucus, I want to extend the deepest of sympathies to David's family and his companions in the House Republican Caucus. May the Lord grant you peace and comfort during this difficult time. And may we all remember that there are so many things more important than politics – that those things that unite us far outnumber those that divide us. May we never take this life and God's blessings for granted."

It has not been reported how Brumbaugh died. He leaves behind a wife and two daughters.

Funeral services are pending.
