Former Republican State Senator Gary Dahl served in the Illinois Senate from 2004-2010.
Senator Sue Rezin said, “Gary Dahl was a champion for the people of the Illinois Valley region. When I was appointed to replace Gary in the Illinois Senate, I knew that I had large shoes to fill.”
Senator Rezin was appointed following Dahl’s decision to step down in December 2010.
“He was the epitome of what it means to be a public servant. But, more importantly, Gary was a kind, giving and wonderful man. He was always looking for a way to give back to the community that he loved so much.”
“My thoughts are with the Dahl family as they navigate the loss of this great man.”
