For most of his life, Jules Doty Jr. knew nothing but service - whether in the U.S. Army during World War II, or in government offices across Kansas.
Doty, who served 12 years as a district judge in Kansas, died Monday in Olathe. He was 82.
Doty, a graduate of Washburn School of Law and a longtime Ottawa attorney, served on the Kansas bench from 1983 until 1995.
Before serving as a judge, he was appointed to the Kansas Corporation Commission by Gov. Robert Docking and served as its commissioner from 1968 to 1974.
The Treece native also worked for the Kansas Department of Revenue before Gov. John Carlin selected him to serve as judge.
