Andrew Patner

Music writer and critic Andrew Patner died on February 3, 2015 following a brief illness, a bacterial infection.

I never met Andrew, but read his blog (and tweets) with interest. He was a significant part of the arts journalism ecosystem in Chicago. It's a huge shock that he's gone without any warning and at the young age of 55. RIP, Andrew; deepest condolences to his partner Tom Bachtell, his mother Irene Patner, and to all who knew and loved him.

Obits and remembrances, more or less in the order I found them:
