Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued the following statement regarding the death of Gary Morse, who helped establish The Villages retirement community in Florida:

“Gary Morse looked at the pastures and prairies of Florida’s interior and saw the American Dream. Not just for him, but for the tens of thousands of seniors who have been able to enjoy their golden years and continue to live them to their fullest. His vision created a retirement community unlike any other, and Florida is richer for his entrepreneurial spirit.

“Gary Morse was a friend and is someone I will miss greatly. My prayers are with his wife Renee, their children and their grandchildren, along with my hope that they find comfort in knowing his life meant so much to so many Floridians.”
