Family says Colin Powell died of complications of COVID-19

Washington (AP) — Former Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman and Secretary of State Colin Powell died of complications from COVID-19, his family said Monday. He was 84 years old.

In a social media announcement, the family said Powell was completely vaccinated.

“We have lost a notable and affectionate husband, father, grandfather, and great American,” the family said.

Powell was the first African-American to serve as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Secretary of State.

Powell left an indelible reputation as a straight shooter who considered running for president and then refused.
