Irving Charles Krauthammer was a political commentator, analyst, and author. His weekly column was published in more than 400 publications around the globe.


Fox News reported on Friday on social media that Krauthammer passed away at the age of 68. He underwent surgery last year to remove a cancerous tumor.

Krauthammer announced earlier this month that the growth had returned. His medical team informed him that he only had weeks to live, and he passed away thirteen days later

Krauthammer informed his colleagues at Fox News of the prognosis in a letter he penned just days before his death.


'My doctors tell me their best estimate is that I have only a few weeks left to live. This is the final verdict. My fight is over.'

Charles Krauthammer, Fox News, June 8m 2018.

He added that he would 'leave this life with no regrets,' saying it was full and complete and worth living. He was sad to leave but had the knowledge that he lived life as he intended.


The letter can be read in its entirety on Faith Family America.

His friends and followers expressed their grief on social media. Chief Political Anchor at Fox News, Bret Baier, said Krauthammer would be 'owning the panel discussion in heaven as well.'


He assured Krauthammer that his friends would keep his legacy alive on earth, while Abby Huntsman said he fought back every challenge that crossed his path.

Sean Spicer said Krauthammer was 'a thoughtful and intelligent voice that will be missed.


As reported by Independent, he received a Pulitzer Prize in the late eighties, for his weekly commentary column in the Washington Post.

Some of his many accolades include the People For The American Way's First Amendment Award, as well as the Eric Breindel Award for Excellence in Opinion Journalism.

Krauthammer leaves behind his wife, Robyn, and son Daniel. To learn more about his life, follow our Twitter page, AmoMama USA.
