Feb 8, 2019

WASHINGTON – Congressman Jim Langevin (D-RI) issued the following statement on the passing of former Congressman John Dingell of Michigan:

“John Dingell was a passionate public servant who dedicated his life to helping his fellow man. His tenacity, spirit, and sharp wit were matched only by his love of country and commitment to the constituents he served. As the longest serving member of Congress in history, his legislative accomplishments spanned decades. He built an incredible legacy that will live on in the House of Representatives and through the millions of lives he changed for the better.  I was proud to call John a colleague and a friend. He will be missed but never forgotten.

“My sympathies go out to his wife, Congresswoman Debbie Dingell, and the entire Dingell family during this difficult time.”
