Decorated Naval aviator-turned-Arizona senator John S. McCain III succumbed to brain cancer on Saturday, aged 81.
Most recently he was one of the few Republicans to speak out against Donald Trump's boorish brand of politics.
Some are calling McCain the last honorable Republican, but I hope politicians of all stripes are inspired by his example.
Where he succeeded, carry on. Where he fell short, strive to improve. These have been my words to live by since my father died from pancreatic cancer in 2001.
