Robert Byrd, Longest-Serving U.S. Senator, Dies at 92

Rest In Peace.

If you comment, please be respectful.  We all know the history of this man, but its not a time to attack him.  It’s a time to mourn the passing of a sitting Senator and respect his family.

Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia, the longest-serving senator in American history, died Monday at the age of 92, a spokesman for the family said.

Byrd, a Democrat who served in the U.S. Senate since 1959, had been plagued by health problems in recent years and was confined to a wheelchair. He had skipped several votes in Congress in the past months.

Jesse Jacobs, a family spokesman, said Byrd died peacefully at about 3 a.m. at Inova Hospital in Fairfax, Va.

He was the oldest member of the 111th Congress.
