The Arizona Republican, whose relationship with President Trump has always been fraught, died on Saturday at the age of 81 after battling brain cancer. French President Emmanuel Macron called McCain "a true American hero".
The break with precedent of previous presidents - who have typically released effusive official statements for noteworthy Americans upon their death - underscored the bitter relationship between the two men, Trump's continued anger toward McCain, and the substantive and stylistic differences between them, people close to both men said.
The heir of a decorated military family, McCain embraced his role as chair of the Senate armed services committee, pushing for aggressive United States military intervention overseas and eager to contribute to "defeating the forces of radical Islam that want to destroy America".
Jim Roddey, former chairman of the Republican Committee of Allegheny County who campaigned for McCain during his 2008 presidential bid, referenced numerous same qualities. But both men deeply admired the Arizona senator. "He showed us that boundless patriotism and self-sacrifice are not outdated concepts or clichés, but the building blocks of an extraordinary American life", Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said in a statement about McCain.
A statement from Ducey's office said that "now is a time for remembering and honoring a consequential life". Some voices are so vibrant, it is hard to think of them stilled.
McCain will have a full funeral service at Washington's National Cathedral on a date yet to be announced, the source said.

McCain was certainly a fighter.
