Walter Mondale, a former US vice president and ambassador to Japan who worked on a yet-to-be-realized plan to close a key USA air base in Okinawa Prefecture, died Monday at his home in Minneapolis, according to USA media.

Mondale would go on to win the Democratic presidential nomination himself in 1984, and make history by naming a woman, US Rep. Geraldine A. Ferraro of NY, as his running mate before ultimately falling short to Reagan.

Mondale wrote a final email to his staff that was sent upon his death, according to Axios. In the email, shared with Axios, Mondale thanked them for their work and declared that "never has a public servant had a better group of people working at their side!"

"Together we have accomplished so much and I know you will keep up the good fight".

U.S. media reported that his family said he died on Monday.

Mr Mondale's own tilt at the White House in 1984, came at the zenith of Ronald Reagan's popularity.

Mondale, who was born in 1928 in Minnesota, started his career as a lawyer and served as Minnesota's attorney general. It wasn't just Harris that Mondale chatted with over the weekend, Cosgrove said - he also spoke with Carter, President Biden, former President Bill Clinton, and Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz (D). After serving as a senator, he was vice president from 1977 to 1981 under then president Jimmy Carter.

Carter issued a statement, "Today I mourn the passing of my dear friend Walter Mondale, who I consider the best vice president in our country's history", Carter said in a statement.
