This is a plain text List of Presidents who have died in office. Click the following to view the List of Assassinated U.S. Presidents instead. The distinction being assassinated president’s (such as Abraham Lincoln) are those that were murdered while in office. Meanwhile president’s who died in office include those that died of disease or illness (such as Warren Harding, supposedly). The list below this one details the U.S. Presidents with the year they died, as well as some background. This particular list was last updated in June of 2020 but we do not expect to be updating this regularly as only eight president’s in United States history have died while in office.

The plain text of presidents to die while in office (names only) is as follows:

William Henry Harrison
Zachary Taylor
Abraham Lincoln
James A. Garfield
William McKinley
Warren G. Harding
Franklin D. Roosevelt
John F. Kennedy
