Tragedy has struck close to home for the President.
Nole Edward Remagen, a Secret Service agent assigned to the presidential protection detail, died on Tuesday morning.
On Sunday, Agent Remagen suffered a stroke while the President was at Turnberry Golf Resort.
The agent was quickly taken to Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow.
Unfortunately, the agent did not recover from the stroke.
Tuesday morning, word started to circulate of his passing.
Remagen had served on the Secret Service for almost two decades.
Prior to joining the agency, he had done a five-year stint with the Marines.
Along with his fellow agents, President Trump expressed his condolences to the family.
He also called Remagen one of the “elite heroes” of the Secret Service.
Trump stated, “Our hearts are filled with sadness over the loss of a beloved and devoted special agent, husband, and father.”
He further stated, “At the time of his passing, he was among the elite heroes who serve in the Presidential Protection Division of the Secret Service.”
Remagen’s death is the first death of an active Secret Service agent in more than a decade.
Prior to his passing, the last agent in active duty to die was Christopher Smith, who died of a heart attack in 2005.
Agent Remagen is survived by his wife and two children.
RIP Agent Remagen and thank you for your service.
