Bill Clinton, Joe Biden Attending Mayor Thomas Menino’s Funeral

After 20 years in office as Boston’s mayor, there are some big names at Thomas Menino’s funeral looking to thank him and say one final goodbye.

Last Friday, Vice President Joe Biden announced that he would be in attendance and called Menino “without a doubt one of the finest Mayors this nation has ever seen.’’

The Boston Globe reported over the weekend that it remained unclear whether other national political figures would be in attendance, but on Monday morning, former President Bill Clinton arrived to pay his final respects.

WCVB reported that basketball legend and former Celtics center Bill Russell also arrived Monday morning. And according to NECN, Red Sox legends David Ortiz and Pedro Martinez are also in attendance.
