Former Vice President Walter Mondale Dies at Age 93

Walter Mondale, who served as the United States’ Vice President from 1977-1981, has died at 93.

His death was announced in a statement from his family, however, no cause was revealed at this time, according to CNBC.

He was married 59 years to wife Joan, until her passing in 2014. They have three children together, Eleanor, Ted, and William.
