His speech at the 2008 Democratic National Convention introducing his father was moving and personal, and launched him onto the national stage.
A statement from the office of the vice president called the former Delaware attorney general "the finest man [the Biden family have] ever known."
Beau Biden is survived by his wife and two children.
