Passing of Dan Sprehe

Anna Panoka in Colorado passes word to me of the death of Dan Sprehe. He was a WIU grad who worked in Illinois and Wisconsin radio before moving on to the Chicago Inspector General's office. I did not know Dan but I am relaying this to all who did. I'm told he was in his early 30s and had been ill recently.

Oh, this is terrible news. Dan was a fine gentleman. A very bright and talented broadcaster, he was tenacious in searching out wrong-doing through his work at the BGA.

My fondest memory of Dan: It was one of the Decatur conventions in the late 1990s ("Decatur II"?). INBA members were on the dance floor, shaking our collective booty to the music of "Sassy." It gets hazy from there...but I remember Dan, an attractive lady and the attractive lady's husband...who turned out to be a cop. Dan escaped with nothing more than a good laugh! :)

Dan Sprehe was a good man. I am terribly sorry to hear of his death. He will be missed.
