Beau Biden, VP Joe Biden’s Son, Dies At Age 46, Two Years After Being Diagnosed With Brain Cancer
The son of Vice President Joe Biden, “Beau”, died at the age of 46 after being diagnosed with brain cancer. The younger Biden suffered the condition and died two years after he was diagnosed with the disease. Read on for more details.
Beau Biden has launched a successful political career of his own. However, he was confronted with health issues including a mild stroke in 2010. At the time, Beau was only 41 years old.
Delaware political observers have been looking at Biden to follow the footsteps of his father. He was already elected twice as attorney general for the party. However, he didn’t choose to run for the U.S. senate. Instead, he expressed his intention to run for governor in the 2016 elections. It was after announcing the matter in April 2014 through an email to his supporters. The younger Biden also said that he does not have any intention to be re-elected as Delaware attorney general, reported Yahoo! News.
In the past months, Biden has maintained a low public profile and declined to comment on any media news. Reports regarding his health condition also caught the political establishment of Delaware off guard.
The report from Yahoo! News went on saying Delaware Governor Jack Markell said that he last spoke to Beau in February after being invited to a meeting in Washington, D.C. Meanwhile, New Castle Country Executive Tom Gordon also said that Biden was serious about running for office and that he thought he would win the battle. Furthermore, Gordon said that his last conversation with Biden happened several weeks ago after the latter attended a conference call in Wilmington. He couldn’t help but commend the character of Biden saying he had a great character and a great image.
Meanwhile, funeral arrangements for the late Beau Biden have not been disclosed but Lt. Col. Len Gratteri, a spokesman for the Delaware National Guard, said he was entitled military honors.
