Wilmington, DE – Governor Markell extended his deepest sympathies to the family of Joseph Robinette “Beau” Biden III.
“Carla and I are heartbroken for Hallie, his children, his parents, his siblings, and the entire Biden family. Beau spent his entire career in the service of his country and his state. He was an outstanding Attorney General, lawyer, soldier, and father. I feel privileged to have served with him and Delaware is a better place thanks to him.
“Beau was also a friend. He was unfailingly interested in the well being of Carla, my kids and my extended family. My entire family is shattered by his death.”
In honor and remembrance of Beau’s life, the Governor has directed that the U.S. and Delaware flags be flown at half-staff.
