WASHINGTON (WABC) — The father of U.S. Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer has died.

The New York senator says his father Abe Schumer passed away Wednesday evening at the age of 98.

Schumer took to Twitter to announce his father’s death.

“In so many ways-he personified the greatest generation. He took whatever was thrown at him no matter how difficult, did his job, never complained,” Schumer said in a tweet. “An amazing husband, parent, grandparent, great-grandparent. We love him & will miss him.”
