Bob Dale, the celebrated war hero and one of most America’s most beloved politicians, passed away Sunday. He was 98 at the time of his death. His passing was confirmed by many outlets, including the New York Times.

Elizabeth Dole Foundation, which announced Dole’s death, did not disclose where he breathed his last. The legendary Senate figure had been battling lung cancer and was to undergo treatment for the disease this year.

The charismatic figure survived the wounds and traumas of World War II and later spend almost a quarter-century in the Senate. Dole was the Republican party’s longest-serving leader until June 2018, when Mitch McConnell broke the record.

Dole was known for his unflinching commitment and unwavering support for collaboration and compromise, the values seen to erode from America’s political spectrum in recent years.

He was nominated for vice president in 1976 and then for president against the Democrats’ Bill Clinton. However, his 1996 bid did not end in success as Clinton won the elections.
