People reports that former president Gerald Ford has passed away.

Gerald R. Ford, who at 93 was America’s oldest living President, has died.

In a statement released by his wife Betty, no cause, place or time of death was named. Ford had been in and out of the hospital the past several months, and was most recently treated for pneumonia.

“My family joins me in sharing the difficult news that Gerald Ford, our beloved husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather has passed away at 93 years of age,” Betty Ford said in the statement, issued from her husband’s office in Rancho Mirage, Calif. “His life was filled with love of God, his family and his country.”

    Honor, humility, humor…. Ford was a class act.

    Too bad he never really had a chance to create a legacy. His entire Presidency was overshadowed by both Nixon’s numerous accomplishments (foreign policy) and failures (Watergate).

    Nevertheless, George W. Bush could learn a lot from President Ford’s presidency, in particular, how to admit that the United States isn’t at the top of its game and that we need an attitude of cooperation, not “we’ll go at it alone” to win the battles of today.
