The World bids George H.W Bush Farewell: A Hero that will be Deeply Missed

On December 3, 2018, Bush became the 12th U.S. President to lie in state in the Rotunda of the U.S. Capitol. Bush’s remains will lie in repose at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church (Houston) from the evening of December 5th until 11:15 a.m. Central Standard Time on December 6.

Bush suffered from vascular parkinsonism, a form of Parkinson’s disease which had forced him to use a motorized scooter or wheelchair since at least 2012.He died on November 30, 2018, aged 94,at his home in Houston. Tributes and condolences were offered by former Presidents Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama, and incumbent President Donald Trump.

George Herbert Walker Bush (June 12, 1924 – November 30, 2018) was an American politician who served as the 41st President of the United States from 1989 to 1993.

As a member of the Republican Party, he had previously been a U.S. Representative, Ambassador, and Director of Central Intelligence. During his career in public service, he was known simply as George Bush; after his eldest son George W. Bush became President of the United States in 2001, he was referred to as “George H. W. Bush”, “Bush 41”, or “George Bush Sr”.

After leaving office in 1993, Bush was active—often alongside his former opponent Bill Clinton—in humanitarian activities.

The United States formally entered World War II in December 1941, following Japan’s surprise attack on Pearl Harbor in Hawaii. Six months later, Bush enlisted into the U.S. Navy immediately after he graduated from Phillips Academy on his eighteenth birthday. He became a naval aviator, taking training for aircraft carrier operations aboard USS Sable.

According to USA Today, the legacy of Bush’s presidency was defined by his victory over Iraq after the invasion of Kuwait, and for his presiding over the collapse of the USSR and unification of Germany.
