WASHINGTON, D.C. – Former U.S. House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) issued the following statement on the passing of John Glenn:

“For generations Americans cheered John Glenn as he soared into the heavens.  Now he has taken his place there for eternity, a well-earned reward for an American life well and heroically lived.  Debbie and I offer our deepest sympathies to Annie and the Glenn family, and join our fellow Ohioans in mourning his loss.”
