Senator Daniel Inouye Dies at 88

FOX: His wife, Irene Hirano Inouye, and his son, Daniel Ken Inouye Jr., were at his side. Last rites were performed by Senate Chaplain Dr. Barry Black.

CNN: Inouye died of respiratory complications at 5:01 p.m. EST (12:01 HST) Monday at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, his office said…. His deputy chief of staff, Peter Boylan, said Inouye's final utterance was, "Aloha."

WaPo: His cause of death was “respiratory complications”….

Immediately following Inouye’s death, his colleagues took to the Senate floor to remember him. ”His service to the Senate will be with the greats of this body,” said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (Nev.).

Inouye’s seat will be filled by an appointment by Gov. Neil Abercrombie (D). He will pick from three finalists provided by the state Democratic Party. State law requires that Inouye must be replaced by a senator from the same political party. Inouye’s seat is up for a full term in 2016.

USA Today: Based on Senate service, Democrat Patrick Leahy of Vermont is next in line after Inouye and will become the Senate president pro tempore.

Inouye is survived by his wife, Irene, a son, Ken, and a granddaughter named Maggie. Inouye's first wife, Margaret, died in 2006.
