Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nypost.com: “Chuck Schumer’s father, Abe, dead at 98, senator says”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

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.

“My dad, Abe, is 98 years old. He served our country proudly in the Pacific in WWII. And I’m thankful for all he’s done for our country and our family,” Schumer, 71, tweeted just weeks ago on Veterans Day.

Abe served in Burma during WWII, and took over a small exterminating business from his father when hereturned to Brooklyn — a job he hated — in order to support his wife Selma, and their three children, Schumer said in congress on his father’s 95th birthday, ahead of Father’s Day.
