Former Dem Rep Victor Fazio passed away on Wednesday.
The death was announced by Nancy Pelosi – no details were given.
Victor Fazio, a Democratic congressman from California who served for 20 years and rose to become an influential party leader in the House, has died. He was 79.
Fazio’s death was announced Wednesday by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, although her office didn’t provide details.
Pelosi called Fazio a close friend who “was a force in helping unite and rally our members in the fight for America’s families.”
Fazio represented the Sacramento area from 1979 to 1999 and was a member of the House Appropriations and Armed Services committees.
“He was an incredibly sharp, passionate legislator, but someone who also cared deeply about those whose voice was often not heard in Washington,” Rep. Doris Matsui, a California Democrat, said in a statement.
“He could just as easily talk to a farmer or a big city mayor. My late husband, Bob Matsui, and I considered Vic a close friend for over 30 years. He worked to make our country a better place with his civility and ability to find common ground.”
