Marion Shepilov Barry, Jr. (March 6, 1936 – November 23, 2014)

Marion Barry, the longtime mayor of the District of Columbia died shortly after
midnight Sunday at the United Medical Center, after having been released from
Howard University Hospital the previous day.

No cause of death was immediately specified, but spokeswoman LaToya Foster
said Barry collapsed outside his home. Barry had battled kidney problems as a
result of diabetes and high blood pressure and underwent a kidney transplant
in February 2009.

Barry made a political comeback after a 1990 FBI sting videotaped him smoking
crack cocaine,
