McCain passed away on Saturday, August 25, 2018, at the age of 81 following a long and hard battle with glioblastoma, a very aggressive brain cancer.

The President of the United States has always been a fan of Twitter and used the platform to address the McCain family's patriarch's death.

McCain was a former prisoner of war and outspoken Republican who wasn't afraid to stand against the opinions of fellow members of his party, earning him the nickname The Maverick.

A WAR HERO

He was known as a very strong-willed man who didn't let others cloud his beliefs and ideals. McCain was loyal to the United States and worked every day of his life to make the country everything it could be.

Back in Vietnam, he was captured by enemy soldiers and tortured for five years before being released. He was held in solitary confinement and beaten up every day while being given very little food and water.

OVERCOMING ADVERSITY

All those years of abuse left him with scars and injuries for life; in fact, McCain couldn't lift his arms above his shoulders because of all the torture he was submitted to.

Despite all the challenges, the Senator of Arizona kept on fighting until the very end. On Friday, the day before passing away, he used his last 'strength of will' to stop treatment for the stage-four brain cancer.

HIS LAST WHISHES

So far, not much is known regarding the late 81-year-old's funeral service, although Barack Obama and George W. Bush, both former Presidents of the U.S., were asked to deliver eulogies at his funeral.

Joe Biden is also scheduled to deliver a speech at another ceremony but, as reported by The New York Times, McCain didn't wish for President Trump to be present at the funeral service.
