World News Today send our condolences to the Vice President Biden and his family.
Earlier this month, Beau, a former Delaware attorney general, was reported to be undergoing treatment at Walter Reed Army Medical Center outside Washington.
After eight years as attorney general, Beau Biden joined the investor law firm Grant & Eisenhofer in 2015.
He served a yearlong tour in Iraq as a captain in the Delaware Army National Guard and underwent surgery at a cancer center in Texas last year. He suffered a mild stroke in 2010.
“The entire Biden family is saddened beyond words. We know that Beau’s spirit will live on in all of us, especially through his brave wife, Hallie, and two remarkable children, Natalie and Hunter,” a statement released by the White House said.
The vice president was then a senate candidate. He ran for the U.S. Senate in Delaware. When he won his election, he lost his first wife and daughter to a car accident. A week before Christmas, Biden was informed about his first wife and his children were injured.
Beau, Hunter, Naomi and wife Nellia were hurt. Nellia and Naomi died of their injuries.
Joseph Robinette Biden III (Beau) was an officer in the Army Judge Advocate General's Corps (JAG), and politician from Wilmington, Delaware. He served as the Attorney General of Delaware and was a Major in the Delaware Army National Guard. He was a member of the Democratic Party and the older son of U.S. Vice President Joe Biden and older step-son of Second Lady of the United States Dr. Jill Biden.
Beau leaves behind his wife Hallie and two children Natalie and Hunter.
Beau was tempted to run for Delaware governor in 2016.
