NAACP Statement on the Passing of Beau Biden

Posted by Admin On June - 2 - 2015

Baltimore, MD — On Saturday, May 30, Vice President Joe Biden announced the passing of his son, Beau Biden, who succumbed to brain cancer last night.  The former Delaware Attorney General’s legacy was that of service. He was a major in the Delaware National Guard and an Iraq War veteran.  And as a young lawyer, he produced instrumental work in war-torn Kosovo. The 46-year-old leaves behind a wife and two children.

Vice President Joe Biden is a lifetime member of the NAACP and spoke fondly of his family most recently at the Detroit Freedom Fund dinner and past NAACP National Conventions. The NAACP joins the Vice President and the nation in extending our deepest condolences for his loss.

President and CEO Cornell William Brooks:

“There is no greater loss than losing a child, husband and father, and this weekend the Biden family have lost all three. Beau Biden’s service to the first state of Delaware and the Armed Services exemplify his patriotic sacrifice.   The NAACP extends our deepest and most prayerful sympathies to Vice President Joe Biden, his family and our during this difficult time.”
