Representative Chad Hays Pays Tribute to Former State Representative Thomas Berns

On Monday, members of the House of Representatives mourned the death of former State Representative Thomas Berns, who served in the Illinois General Assembly from 2000-2002.  He passed away on February 19, 2018 at the age of 72.

An honorary resolution sponsored by State Representative Chad Hays (R-Catlin) honored the life of Rep. Berns, and in his remarks on the floor of the House, Hays called Berns “a gentleman’s gentleman” and a “professional’s professional.”

“He served with enthusiasm and distinction in his home communities of Champaign and Urbana for many years,” said Hays. “I don’t know that I ever met a nicer man.” Click here to view Hays’ entire floor speech.
