President Obama will deliver Beau Biden’s eulogy at a Saturday funeral, officials have announced.

Biden, the former Delaware attorney general and son of Obama’s vice president, Joe Biden, died over the weekend after a battle with brain cancer.

“President Barack Obama will deliver a eulogy in honor of Beau Biden at a 10:30 a.m. Mass on Saturday at St. Anthony of Padua Roman Catholic Church in Wilmington, the last of several public memorial services planned this week,” the News Journal reported.

“A public viewing will be held for Beau Biden at Legislative Hall on Thursday, allowing Delawareans statewide to pay respects to the former attorney general and the vice president’s eldest son. Biden’s body will lie in honor at the capitol building from 1 to 5 p.m., according to the vice president’s office. Previously scheduled sessions of the Delaware House and Senate are canceled.”

Beau Biden had planned to run for Delaware governor in 2016.
