On Monday, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene announced the passing of her father, who succumbed to Melanoma cancer on Sunday after a hard-fought battle with the disease.
Read the Congresswoman’s touching tribute to her father:
My father passed away last night after a hard fought battle over the past 3 months with Melanoma.
Most people don’t know how tremendously difficult my first three months of Congress have been.
While I have endured the flaming arrows fired daily at me while I have been fighting against the left’s war on our freedoms in Congress, my soul was torn apart watching my Daddy suffer and slowly die with cancer.
We don’t win every battle we fight, but my amazing father won the war, and he taught me how to withstand the greatest enemy.
My Dad was the forgotten American man that President Trump worked so hard for.
My Dad grew up with very little, but with a faith in God and dreamed the Great American Dream.
He worked every job from riding a bike delivering newspapers, to factory work, to construction work, and all in between, while trying to go to school.
He was drafted at age 20 to go to war in Vietnam and served our country in the Navy. He lost friends just like many did.
He met a girl after his service, when he went back to college, married my Mom, and had a little girl named Marjorie.
He couldn’t finish school, but proudly went to work to support his family.
With only a truck and a ladder, he tirelessly worked and eventually built a thriving construction company that put a roof over our heads, fed us, clothed us, and Dad provided our families every need.
My Dad had the strongest hands I’ve ever known.
