John S. McCain, a Republican congressman and senator from Arizona and a two-time contender for the presidency, died on Saturday at his home in Arizona. He was 81.
He had suffered from a malignant brain tumor, for which he had been treated periodically with radiation and chemotherapy since its discovery in 2017.
Most people know him as being a maverick in the political arena, but he was also a friend of ISKCON devotees. He used to greet them with saying “Hare Krishna!”, and accepted copies of Bhagavad-gita As It Is and sacred garlands from them on several occasions.
May God help him on his journey forward.
