Chuck Schumer’s Father Dies

Schumer, born on Thanksgiving Day in 1950, told reporters earlier this week in Brooklyn that his father was hospitalized in Long Island undergoing a heart procedure. The father and son shared a close relationship, and Schumer had planned to spend time with him on Thursday.

“My dad, Abe, is 98 years old. He served our country proudly in the Pacific in WWII. And I’m thankful for all he’s done for our country and our family,” Schumer, 71, tweeted just weeks ago on Veterans Day.

Abe served in Burma during WWII and took over a small exterminating business from his father when he returned to Brooklyn — a job he hated — to support his wife, Selma. Schumer said their three children in congress on his father’s 95th birthday, ahead of Father’s Day.

“He gave us the idea that we could follow our dreams standing on his strong and weary shoulders,” he said.
