U.S. Sen. John McCain died on Aug. 25 – four days before his 82nd birthday.
McCain was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor, called glioblastoma, in 2017. Since then, he had been treated periodically with radiation and chemotherapy.
Coming from a military family, McCain was in the Navy and served in the Vietnam War. He was held prisoner for five years before returning home, where he underwent a long period of rehabilitation and recovery from being tortured.
McCain served two terms in the U.S. House of Representatives (1983-87) and six in the Senate, all representing Arizona. He also ran for the presidency twice. He lost the 2000 Republican nomination to George W. Bush. In 2008, he won the Republican nomination, but ultimately lost to the Democratic candidate, Barack Obama.
McCain is survived by his wife, his mother, seven children and five grandchildren.
