For 20 years, Tom Menino served as the Mayor of Boston. He spent his life in service to the city and people of Boston, and was beloved by so many.

After retiring at the beginning of the year, it was revealed in March that Menino was battling an “advanced form of cancer.” On October 23, he announced he was discontinuing cancer treatment to spend more time with his family.
