Longest-Serving Member of Congress John Dingell Dies At Age 92

Michigan Democrat John Dingell Jr., the longest-serving member of Congress in American history who helped write most of the nation’s major environmental and energy laws, died Thursday, his wife said. He was 92.

The Dearborn statesman was a champion of the Detroit auto industry and was credited with increasing access to health care, among other accomplishments.

He died peacefully at his home in Dearborn, surrounded by his wife, U.S. Rep. Deborah Dingell, her office said in a statement. 

“He was a lion of the United States Congress and a loving son, father, husband, grandfather, and friend,” the statement said.

“He will be remembered for his decades of public service to the people of Southeast Michigan, his razor-sharp wit and a lifetime of dedication to improving the lives of all who walk this earth.”

In 2018, John Dingell was diagnosed with prostate cancer that had metastasized and which the former congressman chose not to treat, according to his family. He also had suffered a heart attack and was hospitalized in Detroit last year.

She is expected to release a video shortly officially announcing the end of her campaign later today.
