George H.W. Bush, 41st president, dies at 94

George Herbert Walker Bush, the 41st president of the United States, whose long life in the public sphere was defined by service to his country, has died.  He was 94. 

His wife of 73 years, Barbara Bush, died in April and Mr. Bush was hospitalizedthe day after the funeral to be treated for an infection in his bloodstream. He suffered a number of health issues in his later years, including vascular parkinsonism, a condition similar to Parkinson’s disease, and used a wheelchair to get around.

His son, former President George W. Bush, issued a statement calling his father “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.”

On June 12, 2018, Mr. Bush celebrated his 94th birthday with family members in Kennebunkport, Maine, becoming the first U.S. president in history to reach that age. “I see history as a book with many pages, and each day we fill a page with acts of hopefulness and meaning,” he said in his 1989 inauguration speech.
