Chuck Schumer’s father, Abe, dead at 98, senator says


Abe Schumer, father of Senate Majority leader Chuck Schumer, died at the age of 98 Wednesday night, the New York senator confirmed.

“In so many ways—he personified the greatest generation,” Schumer said in a statement on social media.“He took whatever was thrown at him no matter how difficult, did his job, never complained. An amazing husband, parent, grandparent, great-grandparent. We love him and will miss him.

Schumer, who was born on Thanksgiving Day in 1950, told reporters earlier this week in Brooklyn that his father was hospitalized in Long Island undergoing a heart procedure. The father and son shared a close relationship, and Schumer had planned to spend time with him on Thursday.
