President Donald Trump honored fallen Secret Service Agent Nole Edward Remagen who died of a stroke during his recent trip to Europe in a Wednesday statement.

“Earlier this week, United States Secret Service Special Agent Nole Edward Remagen suffered a stroke while on duty in Scotland,” Trump said. “Yesterday, he passed away, surrounded by family and fellow Secret Service agents. Our hearts are filled with sadness over the loss of a beloved and devoted Special Agent, husband and father.”

Trump noted Remagen’s service record, saying, “A five-year veteran of the United States Marines, Special Agent Remagen spent 19 years with the Secret Service. At the time of his passing, he was among the elite heroes who serve in the Presidential Protection Division of the Secret Service.”

He added, “Melania and I are deeply grateful for his lifetime of devotion, and today, we pause to honor his life and 24 years of service to our Nation.”

Trump visited Andrews Air Force base to receive Remagen’s body Wednesday afternoon.
