George Bush, 41st President of the United States, passed away at the age of 94. He passed peacefully at his home in Houston. His death came less than 8 months after his wife of 73 years, Barbara Bush.

Mr. Bush had a form of Parkinson’s disease that forced him to use a wheelchair in recent years. He had also been in and out of the hospital during this time. A day after Mrs. Bush’s funeral, he was treated for an infection that spread to his blood. But he continued fighting.

Mr. Bush, a Republican, served from 1989 to 1993, capping a career of more than 40 years in public service. He served as a Navy pilot who was shot down in the Pacific in 1944; he was the last of the World War II generation to occupy the Oval Office.

Mr. Bush entered the White House with an impressive resume. He had been a two-term congressman from Texas, ambassador to the United Nations, chairman of the Republican National Committee, United States envoy to China, director of the Central Intelligence Agency and vice president, under Ronald Reagan.

He promised America that “he would keep America moving forward” and strive “for a better America.” He most definitely accomplished that and left behind one of the biggest legacies in America.
