Rockwood City Councilman William Pete Wright, 80, died Tuesday after struggling with health issues.
Wright, who had missed some recent Rockwood City Council meetings for medical tests, had fallen at one point because of a dizzy spell.
“He had some medical problems, and really we were concerned about it,” said Mayor James Watts.
Wright had seemed to be improving, but Watts said his heart problems proved to be too much.
Wright, who won a two-year term in 2011, had taken out a petition for a full council term in the Nov. 4 election.
