ST. LOUIS — Funeral services are pending for Rick Desloge, who spent nearly three decades as a journalist with the St. Louis Business Journal.

The Business Journal said Desloge died Monday, about a year after he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He was 63.

Desloge began at the Business Journal in 1984 and continued working until recently. He was well-known for his "St. Louis Character" feature. He provided twice-daily Business Journal reports on KMOX Radio until about a month ago.

Desloge was a graduate of MU and received numerous journalism awards from the Missouri Press Association and the Society of American Business Editors and Writers.

He is survived by his wife, Nancy, and sons Rick and Nick.
