Former US President George H.W. Bush Dies at 94

WASHINGTON – Former United States President George H.W. Bush died on Friday at the age of 94.

“Jeb, Neil, Marvin, Doro, and I are saddened to announce that after 94 remarkable years, our dear Dad has died,” Bush’s son and also former US President George W. Bush said in a statement.

Bush’s death comes eight months after that of his spouse, former First Lady Barbara Bush, to whom he was married for 73 years.

George H.W. Bush served as fighter pilot during World War II, a Congressman, Ambassador to the United Nations, CIA director and Vice President under Ronald Regan between 1981-1989, before concluding his four-decade long political career by serving as US president from 1989-1993.

During his stint in the White House, Bush Sr. saw the end of the Cold War, the first Gulf War and the invasion of Panama while the Soviet Union collapsed and Germany reunified.

Despite military and diplomatic successes, Bush Sr. was unable to secure a re-election, and in 1993 he handed over the reins over the White House to Bill Clinton and retired to his home in Boston (Texas) along with his wife.

The former president was suffering from a form of Parkinson’s disease that left him on a wheelchair over the last few years. He was also frequently hospitalized especially for respiratory problems.
