He had been out of the office for several weeks with health issues and cited health concerns as the primary reason for leaving.
“It was just time,” Herrig said. “I’ve had some health issues. And I had a long discussion with my family and we decided it was the right time to move on.” -Loras Herrig, as quoted in the Dubuque Telegraph-Herald
