Former commissioner Bob Hein dies

Former Marion County commissioner Bob Hein of Hillsboro died Monday at Salem Home.

Hein was elected to a full term on the commission in 1998 and served until 2010. Commission Chairman Dan Holub served with Hein from 2008 to 2010. “It’s a loss,” Holub said. “He had his district, but he did care very much about Marion County. There were a lot of painful decisions he made, but he was always looking at the county as a whole. He did the best he could.” A funeral service will be 10:30 a.m. Friday at Hillsboro United Methodist Church.
