Reactions to Death of George H.W. Bush Note Legacy of Service

He also worked with ex-presidents Clinton, Jimmy Carter, Barack Obama and son George to raise money for hurricane victims in Texas in 2017.

Clinton adds that Bush never stopped serving even after leaving office, working on tsunami relief in Asia and within the US after Hurricane Katrina.

Mr Bush, the 41st president of the United States, who lived longer than any of his predecessors, presided over the end of the Cold War and routed Saddam Hussein's Iraqi army.

In a statement, the Trumps praise Bush for his "sound judgment, common sense and unflappable leadership". "Vice President of the United States".

- "On Friday, George H.W. Bush took his final flight, reuniting with his wife of 73 years, Barbara and his 3-year-old daughter, Robin".

Former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev today praised former U.S. president George H.W. Bush for his role in ending the Cold War, calling him a "true partner".

The Trumps say that Bush "inspired generations of his fellow Americans to public service".

Bush Snr, a Second World War veteran, was born George Herbert Walker Bush in Milton, Massachusetts, on 12 June 1924.

Bush's presidency saw another symbolic milestone in the end of the Cold War arms race: the end of United States nuclear-weapons testing.

Brent Scowcroft, the national security adviser during George H.W. Bush's presidency, said "The world has lost a great leader" and "this country has lost one of its best".

The Trumps add that Bush remained humble despite his accomplishments, "following the quiet call to service that gave him a clear sense of direction". The Obamas, in a statement, said Bush's life was "a testament to the notion that public service is a noble, joyous calling".

"Expanding America's promise to new immigrants and people with disabilities".

They said: "It's a legacy of service that may never be matched, even though he'd want all of us to try".

In August 1990 he responded to Saddam Hussein's invasion of Kuwait, creating a national coalition led by the U.S. that liberated the oil-rich yet tiny nation but stopped short of toppling the Iraqi dictator. A statement released by Jim McGrath on behalf of George W. Bush on November 30, 2018 read: "Jeb, Neil, Marvin, Doro, and I are saddened to announce that after 94 remarkable years, our dear Dad has died". Eight years later, as he accepted the Republican Party's nomination for president in 1988, Bush pleaded for a "kinder, and gentler nation". In 1992 he lost his bid for reelection to Democrat William Clinton.

"Not merely for the years he spent as our 42st President, but for the more than 70 years he spent in devoted service to the country he loved - from a decorated Naval aviator who almost gave his life in World War II, to Commander-in-Chief of our Armed Forces, with plenty of posts along the way".

On his 18th birthday he enlisted to fight in WWII, becoming the youngest pilot in the U.S. Navy.
