Presidential Candidate John McCain has died at age 81

John McCain’s family revealed that the senator was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor in July 2017. John fought a strong fight… for over a year, the family announced on Friday, August 24, that he would no longer receive medical treatment for his condition.  “John has surpassed expectations for his survival.  But the progress of disease and the inexorable advance of age render their verdict,” the statement read. “With his usual strength of will, he has now chosen to discontinue medical treatment.”

John McCain passed away today (August 25, 2018) around 4:28 pm.  You may remember him most for running as the Presidential Candidate against Barack Obama… but John McCain has also

  • naval bomber pilot
  • prisoner of war
  • conservative maverick
  • giant of the Senate (served in the senate for over 30 years)
  • twice-defeated presidential candidate
  • abrasive American hero (Prisoner of War)

John McCain posted a memoir back in May… He hated to have to leave the world but he has no complaints.

“It’s been quite a ride. I’ve known great passions, seen amazing wonders, fought in a war, and helped make peace,” McCain wrote. “I’ve lived very well and I’ve been deprived of all comforts. I’ve been as lonely as a person can be and I’ve enjoyed the company of heroes. I’ve suffered the deepest despair and experienced the highest exultation.
“I made a small place for myself in the story of America and the history of my times.”
