Harry Connick Sr., the longtime New Orleans District Attorney, and father to two, including musician Harry Connick Jr., has passed away at the age of 97.

The younger Connick’s Publicist confirmed the elder Connick’s death to Fox News Digital Thursday, saying that he died peacefully at his New Orleans home with his children and wife by his side.

He won re-election four times, a White politician who successfully built biracial support as the city’s political power base shifted to African Americans.

A lifelong music fan, he took up singing in the early 1990s and became a regular performer at nightclubs in New Orleans and across the state, in addition to many successful guest appearances with his son.

His son’s publicist said Connick “will be deeply missed, but all who knew him were well aware that his greatest desire was to spend eternity with God in heaven.”
