2. What an odd middle name - Sargeant
was this someone's last name?
I can't think of anyone else with the first name Sargeant.

4. He has suffered from Alzheimer's for years.
The McGovern/Shriver 1972 ticket is the oldest major presidential ticket as of today where both candidates are still alive.

7. I used to see him every day.
I worked at Special Olympics HQ in Washington for a time. He was an extremely pleasant man, and highly admired by everyone there.

Go gently, sir. Family awaits you, if it's your time.

9. When I was 16, I spent a summer as a volunteer at Project Head Start
I am think of Mr. Shriver today. May he have a peaceful transition.
