President Barack Obama says former Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden made a decision as a young boy to live a life of meaning and a life dedicated to others.
Obama is remembering Vice President Joe Biden’s son during a funeral service Saturday in Wilmington, Delaware.
Obama says Beau Biden found a way to make everyone else feel like they mattered. He says that’s because his father taught him that everyone matters.
The president says Beau Biden was the rare politician who prioritized his private life and his family above all else. He says Beau refused to cut corners or trade on his family name.
