Lawmakers mourn Rep. Sean Cox

New Hampshire lawmakers extend their condolences to the family of state Rep. Sean Cox, 40, a Republican from Andover who died Saturday night. Details surrounding his death are not known.

House Majority Leader D. J. Bettencourt today said he is &#';shocked and deeply saddened&#'; by the freshman legislator's death.

&#';Like all who worked with and came to know him, I admired and respected his intelligence, dedication and sincerity,&#'; Bettencourt said in a statement

&#';I will miss him as a friend who was always quick to offer advice and words of encouragement. New Hampshire will miss him as a public servant and his constituents have lost an outstanding advocate,&#'; he added.

Bettencourt said &#';there were certainly no health issues that I was aware of and that is a big part of the surprise.&#'; He described Cox as a father who was a &#';very active&#'; and &#';very energetic&#'; legislator.

House Speaker Bill O'Brien contacted Cox's wife who confirmed he had died Saturday night, Bettencourt said.

Cox represented District 6 in the New Hampshire House of Representatives. He sat on the Science, Technology and Energy Committee.
