Beau Biden to Lie in Honor at Delaware State Capitol

Thursday, 04 Jun 2015 01:32 PM

Delaware residents are arriving at the state Capitol to pay last respects to former Attorney General Beau Biden.

Biden, eldest son of Vice President Joe Biden, died of brain cancer Saturday at age 46.

Gov. Jack Markell and former Gov. Ruth Ann Minner were among the crowd gathered Thursday. Beau Biden was to lie in honor in the Senate chamber following a processional from Wilmington to Dover.

Thursday's services are the first in a series of public commemorations, which include a viewing at St. Anthony of Padua church in Wilmington on Friday, followed by a Saturday funeral Mass at which President Barack Obama will deliver a eulogy.

Beau Biden's health declined after doctors discovered a brain lesion in 2013.
