Donald Rumsfeld, who served as secretary of defense under President Ford and President George W. Bush, has died at the age of 88.

In a statement released Wednesday, the Rumsfeld family paid tribute to their fallen relative and his lifetime achievements.

“It is with deep sadness that we share the news of the passing of Donald Rumsfeld, and American statesman and devoted husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather. At 88, he was surrounded by family in his beloved Taos, New Mexico,” it read.

“History may remember him for his extraordinary accomplishments over six decades of public service, but for those who knew him best and whose lives were forever changed as a result, we will remember his unwavering love for his wife Joyce, his family and friends, and the integrity he brought to a life dedicated to country,” the statement added.
