(CNN)Walter Frederick "Fritz" Mondale, who served as vice president under then-President Jimmy Carter before waging his own unsuccessful White House bid in 1984, has died, according to a family spokesperson. He was 93.
Mondale died at home in downtown Minneapolis surrounded by family, spokesperson Kathy Tunheim said.
"It is with profound sadness that we share news that our beloved dad passed away today in Minneapolis, Minnesota," Mondale's family said in a statement. "As proud as we were of him leading the presidential ticket for Democrats in 1984, we know that our father's public policy legacy is so much more than that."

In an email to former staffers obtained by CNN on Monday, Mondale acknowledged in a moving message that his "time has come."

Lots of news from Minneapolis today.

Mondale was a decent, humble, soft spoken man who could talk about policy with a great deal of candor. In the era of Trump and sound bites, he would never have risen to the level he did. He was too good.

just a bit unfortunate that he ran when reagan was wildly popular. at least he was honest about raising taxes when that's political suicide.
