SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- According to the Deseret Morning News, former Utah Governor Cal Rampton has suffered a stroke.

The newspaper says it learned about Rampton's condition when calling for a comment from the former governor on the death of LDS church leader James Faust.

Rampton's son, Vince, tells the paper that the stroke has left his father unable to speak. Rampton has been in declining health.

Vince Rampton says his 93-year-old father had been a longtime legal colleague of Faust and had indicated recently he wanted Faust to speak at his funeral.

Cal Rampton is the only Utah governor to serve three full terms. He was first elected in 1965. He decided not to run for a fourth term in 1976.
