PHOENIX (AP) — Sen. John McCain was eulogized Thursday as a “a true American hero” — and a terrible driver with a wicked sense of humor and love of a good fight — as 3,500 mourners crowded into an Arizona church to pay their final respects to the maverick politician.

Former Vice President Joe Biden recalled “the sheer joy that crossed his face when he knew he was about to take the stage of the senate floor and start a fight.”

Biden, a Democrat who was among the fast friends the Republican senator made across the aisle, said he thought of McCain as a brother, “with a lot of family fights.”
