Former US Vice President Walter Mondale Dies Aged 93

Mondale served under President Jimmy Carter from 1977 to 1981.

Former US Vice President Walter Mondale died Monday at the age of 93, his family announced.
"It is with profound sadness that we share news that our beloved dad passed away today in Minneapolis, Minnesota," said his family in a statement, adding he "died peacefully from natural causes."
Mondale, a Democrat, served under President Jimmy Carter from 1977 to 1981, becoming the first vice president to have an office in the White House.
Before his office at the presidential mansion, he represented Minnesota in the Senate for 12 years. Mondale also served as Minnesota's Attorney General and US Ambassador to Japan.
Carter mourned the passing of his "dear friend," who he called the best vice president in US history.
"During our admin, Fritz used his political skill and personal integrity to transform the vice presidency into a dynamic, policy-driving force," said the former president, referring to Mondale by his nickname.
The environment was one of the major policy focuses for Mondale, with his family saying that the passage of the Wild And Scenic Rivers Act "was another hard-fought accomplishment in his long career."
"Beyond his commitment to public service, our dad was committed to our family, and we will miss him more than words can capture," said the statement.
The family is expected to announce plans for memorials later for both Minnesota and Washington, D.C. -
