Governor’s Weekly Message Transcript: Honoring the Memory of Joseph Robinette “Beau” Biden III

As Delawareans mourn the loss of Beau Biden, our hearts are heavy. We grieve – and we honor a remarkable life of service, courage and love. Beau had an incredible heart. And from that heart, he lived a life that offers something to teach all of us. Beau was a model for determinedly pursuing success, while also demonstrating exceeding humility and grace – a dedicated public servant who had a fierce devotion to family above all else – an Attorney General, a Major in the Delaware National Guard, and a father, husband, and son whose every life decision reflected a passion for giving back. We remember his tireless commitment to improving the lives of Delawareans and serving his state and nation – including through an extraordinary record fighting to protect and ensure opportunity for our children. And we remember the heart that touched so many lives. The proverbs teach us to say not in grief ‘he is no more’ but in thankfulness that he was. While Beau Biden left us far too soon, his accomplishments, his example, and his love leave an everlasting imprint on our state.
