Judge Carney succumbs to cancer
Mississippi County Judge Randy Carney died Wednesday morning, Aug. 9, after a long illness.
He was first sworn in as county judge on Jan. 1, 2011, and won re-election for his fourth term last November.
Carney was first diagnosed with cancer in April 2014. In April 2016, during a Quorum Court meeting, Carney announced the cancer had returned.
“He will be missed as a personal friend and a very good friend to the people west of the Lake,” Manila Mayor Wayne Wagner said.
