George Herbert Walker Bush, 41st President Of The United States, Has Died Aged 94

Washington Examiner

Excerpt:

President George H. W. Bush, President of the United States from 1989 to 1993, father of President George W. Bush, World War II veteran, and former CIA director died Friday, his family has announced.

He passed away in Houston, Texas, at 10:10 p.m. Central time, according to his spokesman Jim McGrath, who said funeral arrangements "will be announced as soon as is practical." Bush was in failing health in recent years but was able to parachute on his 90th birthday. In the last week of his life, he was visited by former President Barack Obama, with whom he had developed warm relations.

A statement released from his office read: “George Herbert Walker Bush, World War II naval aviator, Texas oil pioneer, and 41st President of the United States of America, died on November 30, 2018. He was 94 and is survived by his five children and their spouses, 17 grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren, and two siblings. He was preceded in death by his wife of 73 years; his second child Pauline Robinson 'Robin' Bush; and his brothers Prescott and William or 'Bucky' Bush." Barbara Bush died in April at age 92.

Former President George W. Bush said in a statement: “Jeb, Neil, Marvin, Doro and I are saddened to announce that after 94 remarkable years, our dear Dad has died. George H.W. Bush was a man of the highest character and the best dad a son or daughter could ask for. The entire Bush family is deeply grateful for 41’s life and love, for the compassion of those who have cared and prayed for Dad, and for the condolences of our friends and fellow citizens."

I'm with you, too. He was a patriotic citizen who served his country with honor and distinction. His political instincts were tin-eared.

One of the greatest generation......came home from war......started a family......started a business......made a success......entered politics.....made decisions he thought was best.......had some success.....had some failures......

Loved Barbara.....loved his kids and grandkids......

all in all a life well lived....

I am sad at his passing and I truly hope his State Funeral is not political as Sen. McCain’s was.....that he’s buried as the gentleman I have always thought him to be.

:flag:

Fair winds and following seas, Navy.

Full respect for his Navy time. Full respect for his family dedication. Didn’t care for him as a Pres because it was his direct fault we got Clinton and that plague just won’t go away.

RIP and condolences to his family.

Same here.

I actually like him better than Reagan in the '80 primary, but wasn't quite as impressed when he actually got the job. I'n the '88 primary I'd rather have had Jack Kemp but he never got any traction and dropped out early.
