Benjamin Franklin (January 17, 1706 – April 17, 1790)

Benjamin Franklin was one of the Founding Fathers of the United States. He
was a leading author, printer,
political theorist, politician, freemason,
postmaster, scientist, inventor, humorist, civic activist, statesman, and
diplomat.

Franklin suffered from obesity throughout his middle-aged and later years,
which resulted in multiple health problems, particularly
gout, which became
worse as he aged. In poor health during the signing of the US Constitution
in 1787, he was rarely seen in public from then until his death. Franklin
died from
pleuritic attack  at his home in Philadelphia on April 17, 1790,
at age 84.
