Funeral services are pending for former state’s attorney and circuit judge C. Joseph Cavanagh.
Cavanagh died Thursday after suffering a stroke while visiting family in California. He was 81.
Cavanagh was elected twice as state’s attorney back in the 1970s, later leaving that job after being appointed to a judgeship.
His death comes just days after another former state’s attorney and judge, Don Cadagin, also passed away after taking ill while on a trip.
