Beau Biden, a former Delaware Attorney General and the elder son of Vice President Joe Biden, died at 46 following a battle with brain cancer, the Vice President’s office announced Saturday.
An Iraq War veteran and recipient of the Bronze Star, Beau was remembered in a statement for his professional accomplishments and as a family man. “Beau measured himself as a husband, father, son and brother,” the Vice President said. “His absolute honor made him a role model for our family.”
The younger Biden opted against running for reelection in 2014 but had been seen as a likely contender for the Delaware governorship in 2016.
He had suffered a stroke in 2010 and, in 2013, was admitted to MD Anderson Cancer Center in Texas. He is survived by his wife, Hallie, and his children, Natalie and Hunter.
