WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden and his family are planning a Saturday funeral mass for former Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden in his hometown of Wilmington. President Barack Obama is planning to deliver a eulogy.

The vice president’s oldest son died on Saturday of brain cancer at age 46. The vice president’s office announced Tuesday that Beau Biden will lie in honor Thursday at Dover Legislative Hall. A wake and viewing is planned Friday at St. Anthony of Padua R.C. Church in Wilmington, where the funeral also will be held. All are open to the public.

Beau Biden had been planning a run for Delaware governor next year after serving two terms as state attorney general. Beau Biden also was an Iraq War veteran and father of two.
