The Speaker of the House confirmed the news Sunday, saying in a statement … “My husband Paul and our entire family are devastated by the loss of our patriarch, my beloved brother, Thomas D’Alesandro III.” He reportedly passed after suffering a stroke.
His sister called him ‘the finest public servant I have ever known’, in a statement.
Pelosi said his ‘life and leadership were a tribute to the Catholic values with which we were raised: faith, family, patriotism’.
The Baltimore Sun reported D’Alesandro, who served as Baltimore’s mayor from 1967 to 1971, died Sunday at his Baltimore home after complications of a stroke. He was 90.
D’Alesandro served as Baltimore City Council president and then as mayor. The elder D’Alesandro also served as a state delegate and congressman.
