Former congressman Robert Krueger dies at 86

Former Texas Democratic Rep. Robert Krueger died Saturday at the age of 86.

Krueger passed away due to congestive heart failure in his home, as confirmed by his daughter Sarah Krueger on Sunday.

The congressman also served as a diplomat. He last served as U.S. ambassador to to Burundi in 1994.

“The eastern African country was embroiled in civil strife at the time. Krueger had to be airlifted when his convoy was attacked by unidentified gunmen in June 1995, killing one convoy member and injuring several others, and was recalled from the post for his safety,” the Associated Press reported.

Krueger also served “as a visiting fellow at Merton College, Oxford, and continued his academic pursuits until his 2017 retirement from a lectureship position at Texas Tech University,” according to the Hill.

The former congressman led a life filled with accomplishments, serving his nation, teaching and serving worldwide on behalf of his country over the course of his nearly nine decades.
