Nov. 2, 2017 – Madison, WI – A moment of silence today at the Wisconsin State Capitol in Madison as the Wisconsin State Assembly recognized Rep. Bob Gannon (R-West Bend).
The moment was broadcast live just after 1:15 p.m. Wednesday at the immediate start of the meeting on WisconsinEye.org
Assembly Speaker Robin Vos said, “Bob we remember for his big heart, his even bigger passion for politics, he will be remembered as a successful business owner, a community leader, someone who came to this place for all the right reasons…. he didn’t come for the money, he didn’t come for the fame… even though he got a little.
“He did come because he cared and he wanted to truly show the best of what Wisconsin is.
“Unfortunately this teaches us all a lesson that no matter what age you are we should live life every day because you never know when it’s your turn to meet your maker.
“If we can all please rise for a moment a silence to remember one of our former colleagues who passed away too young.”
Rep. Bob Gannon died unexpectedly on Tuesday, Oct. 3, 2017.
Following the moment of silence Rep. Jason Fields offered a couple of words and a prayer with Rep. Gannon in mind.
