Madison, WI—Assistant Assembly Majority Leader Rob Brooks (R-Saukville) issued the following statement regarding the loss of his friend and fellow 20th senate district colleague, Representative Bob Gannon (R-Slinger):

“I am deeply saddened to learn that my friend and colleague, Bob Gannon, passed away last evening. During his tenure in the legislature, Bob served with a sense of conviction and passion that was, quite frankly, second to none. He was a true champion of his conservative beliefs and values. His fight to bring awareness to generational poverty and his strong desire to look for solutions and create opportunities for Wisconsinites in poverty will be missed in our caucus.”

Representative Gannon loved his family, country, and state, and was a true patriot. My thoughts, prayers, and condolences go out to his wife, Kris, and the Gannon family, during this difficult time.”
