Jim Hardin, who protected President Lyndon B. Johnson and his family as a Secret Service agent, died in Texas at the age of 80.

The death was announced Thursday by the LBJ Presidential Library in Austin.

His son, Brad Hardin, told the Associated Press that his dead had an apparent heart attack at his Fredericksburg home.

Hardin, a former teacher and football coach, joined the Secret Service in 1965.

Hardin protected Johnson’s daughter, Lynda, in 1966, while she was attending the University of Texas. Hardin later joined President Johnson’s protective detail.

Hardin, who also protected President Richard Nixon, retired in 1995.
