A close friend claimed that Jerry Springer kept one significant secret till the very end.

According to reports, Jerry Springer made an effort to say his goodbyes but reportedly never informed his closest pals that he had pancreatic cancer.

The 79-year-old longtime presenter of one of TV’s most boisterous and heated daytime talk shows passed away on Friday, April 27. A family representative stated that Springer passed away peacefully at home after a “brief illness,” although TMZ claimed it was pancreatic cancer.

According to the Associated Press, Jene Galvin, a family spokesperson and friend of Jerry Springer, said in a statement that “Jerry’s ability to connect with people was at the heart of his success in everything he tried, whether that was politics, broadcasting, or just joking with people on the street who wanted a photo or a word.”

Thousands of people have undoubtedly expressed their condolences for Springer on social media. After all, the seasoned TV personality has long been a favorite among viewers.

The retired police officer Steve Wilkos, who worked as a security guard for the “Springer Show” in 1994, might be feeling the sorrow more intensely than most. Because of his success there, he launched his own program, “The Steve Wilkos Show,” in 2007. The 16th season of that program is presently airing.

Wilkos talked about how he and the late Jerry remained close over the years and how he believes his longtime buddy was trying to bid him farewell when they last saw each other a month ago.

Wilkos asserted that Springer had kept his cancer diagnosis a secret, thus the former security guard was shocked by the news of the former guard’s passing yesterday.

The former Chicago police officer claims that Springer called him last month about a cigar get-together after he had just wrapped up filming The Steve Wilkos Show.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Wilkos said, “I really didn’t want to go, but it’s Jerry, and I’m like, ‘I want to see the guy, and I love him.'” He never let me know he was ill. And now I think that him being there that evening was his way of saying goodbye to me without actually saying it. I’m sorry I didn’t know. “I think he was bidding me farewell in his own way,” she said.

He continued, “He hugged me. He gave me a hug like he had never given one before and declared his love for me. We sat down, and now that I think back on it, we were talking a lot about the enjoyable moments we had together. We didn’t do it very frequently, but this time it was a lot of conversation.

It makes a lot more sense to me now, I was saying to my wife. He never informed me he had pancreatic cancer, but I heard he did. I’m therefore quite unsure. But if it’s true, he certainly bid me farewell in a way that made me aware of it.

Wilkos acknowledges that Springer had a huge influence on his life in terms of how it affected his own. Before being hired to provide security for Springer’s show, Wilkos had planned to work as a police officer for the remainder of his days before retiring and collecting his pension.

Wilkos said, “I’ve known Jerry for thirty years next year.” “I’m still in disbelief that I won’t see him again.” Even though he was 79 years old, I genuinely thought he would live to be 100.

“I’m not exaggerating when I say [he was] the nicest man in the world,” he continued. He was a wonderful friend, husband, and father.
