(CNN) – Days after a photo of him casting his final presidential vote captured the hearts of thousands and went viral online, World War II veteran Frank Tanabe died Wednesday.
A week ago, the terminally ill 93-year-old's absentee ballot arrived in the mail.
And that's why they call them America's "Greatest Generation." R.I.P.
Condolences to his family
I salute you sir. Rest In Peace.
God bless Mr.Tanabe ,he showed Americans even on his death bed he wanted his voice heard in voting.Condolences to the Tanabe family ,another WWII vet has gone to heaven with the Lord to rest,he's in a better place now.
The right to vote is cherished!
God blessed you.
RIP, Sir, and thank you again for your service to our country.
May he rest in peace. Regardless of who he votes for the act alone makes him a patriot and supporter of our democratic system. He is also a hero since he put his life on the line to serve this country.
My condolences to the family.
God bless you and your family Frank. Thank you for your service.
The true definition of citizen / patriot, a veteran from the "greatest generation" and responsible citizen!
God bless his soul.
I don't need to know who the man supported. He, like many Americans, considered voting an honor, a priviledge and a duty. It is him and people like him that are the backbone of this country. I'm just glad that his family made sure that one of his last acts was to exercise his right to vote in one last Presidential election.
Thank you sir for you service and for your belief in America, Bless you.
Another faithful son of Liberty has gone after inspiring us to strive for freedom. May his spirit help sustain us all.
God bless this veteran and his family- thanks so much for his service all those years ago, and I hope the family was able to relay our appreciation for his sacrifices made for our country back then. We appreciate him so very much- heaven has a special angel!
A very special thank you to this veteran who sacrificed so much for our country, even when discriminated against due to his heritage. He rose above that and did what he felt was right. We appreciate him very much, and hopefully the family was able to relay the outpouring of support prior to his death. Heaven has a very special angel :)
What a sad goodbye,to a war veteran
He was a Republican and most likely voted for Romney – Too bad his last vote will not count... All in all he's a WWII soldier that died for the Red states and the Blue states and should be remembered for that... R.I.P.
Obama/Biden 2012 – The Only Trusted Way Forward!!
Correction – His last vote will not count because he most likely voted for Romney, not because he passed away...
A Hero! Our prayers and thoughts to his family!
