Quincy political activist Chip Gerdes dies of heart attack

Chip Gerdes, Quincy-based political activist and friend/co-activist with Andrew Breitbart, died of a sudden heart attack Monday. Gerdes was a behind-the-scenes activist in congressional and state campaigns in both Illinois and Missouri. He leaves behind a widow and child.



The word is passing on the web. Gateway Pundit writes about work with Gerdes HERE. Oceander Loesch HERE. UPDATE: Missouri Congresswoman Ann Wagner read a tribute on the floor of the U.S. House Monday.

    @tonykatz Truly sad. @TookieW was beloved. Most people never heard of Chip, because he insisted on anonymity. R.I.P. @HatingBreitbart

God bless you,Chip. The man was a fighter with a big heart. He was extremely good to me- over delivered on every promise. A rare man in politics, he will be missed. Rest in peace

I had the pleasure of spilling more than one beer with Chip - Never has there been a bigger man who stood for our individual freedoms than he. His loud and voice-tress way made me feel like a Church mouse -hard to do! His large stature was only dwarfed by his passion for this country. Heaven just got a little louder - the Good Lord must of needed a warrior.

Another premature death from a sudden heart attack... and this one isn't even high-profile. Beware, everyone. We are not safe.

WTF?

Okay....we appreciate the nice biography about his work and contribution....but WHERE did it happen?

Was he home in bed?  Was he walking along the street coming from a restaurant....like Andrew?
