Along with many of you, we were/are shocked and saddened at the news of Larry Schreiner’s death. Too soon, too young leaving us with years of memories.
For any of you who are new to Larry’s name, most of those who heard him during his years on WGN would probably agree that he was a singularly passionate, outspoken, sometimes hard-headed, devoted, dependable, driven, renowned expert in language mangling (“Schreinerisms”), product of Chicagoland’s streets, police departments, fire departments and broadcast media.
Additionally, in his private life, Larry was many things to many people: Father, gardener, car lover and … FRIEND.
If we may, we’d like to share some stories about our friend.
