The Rev. Billy Graham, the charismatic North Carolina evangelist known as "America's pastor," died early Wednesday at his home in North Carolina. He was 99. Graham has been called a main driver in the rise of evangelical Christianity. Known for his national and international preaching and activism, he was a counselor to numerous American presidents. In 1983, President Reagan awarded Graham the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor. In 2007, former presidents George H.W. Bush, Jimmy Carter, and Bill Clinton attended the dedication of the Billy Graham Museum and Library in Charlotte. "When he prays with you in the Oval Office or upstairs in the White House, you feel he's praying for you, not the president," Clinton said at the ceremony.

Editor's note: Most of the people I post here who have passed away (at suspicious ages) are known, but not widely known, so I think it's interesting that we're being made aware of the death when generally few would realize or care. Billy Graham, on the other hand, was very much widely known, so it makes sense that the media is talking about him. However, I think it's still very interesting that he passed away at the age that just happens to be a derivative of the number 11.
