U.S. Sen. John McCain, a no-nonsense Vietnam War hero who confounded political friends and foes alike by intermittently challenging and championing Republican Party orthodoxy during more than three decades representing Arizona in the House and Senate, died Saturday at his home in Arizona. He was 81.
McCain, who was diagnosed last year with an aggressive form of brain cancer that had kept him away from the Senate since mid-December, died just one day after his family announced he would end his treatment for brain cancer. He would have turned 82 on Aug. 29.
His daughter, Meghan McCain, said in a statement that her father “was a great fire who burned bright, and we lived in his light and warmth for so very long.”
