With the McCain family, his staff and all of Arizona, we at Arizona Grantmakers Forum are mourning the loss of U.S. Sen. John McCain. A champion for immigration reform and supporter of human rights, veterans services and health care, he leaves a legacy of remarkable leadership and commitment to public service.
As a two-time presidential candidate, six-term senator, Vietnam veteran and prisoner of war, Sen. McCain dedicated his life to serving our country and state with dignity, pride and determination. While we grieve, we also celebrate his charismatic spirit and lasting impact that continues to inspire leaders across Arizona and the nation.
Those who would like to pay their respects in person are invited to attend a memorial at the Arizona State Capitol on Wednesday, Aug. 29 where Sen. McCain will lie in state from 2 to 8 p.m.
