My condolences to his wife, three surviving children and family as well as the German people.

He was quite a leader and was not afraid to go against the grain at a time when Germany needed a strong leader to help get over the past and move the country forward.

For more backround on many of his accomplishments, one only need to read a few of the articles that are populating simple google searches on his name.
