The news came out today on November 30, 2018, that George H. W. Bush has passed away at the age of 94. This comes as a shock to many people. For some reason, it is hard to believe that he is gone. Bush did live to see his son win the oval office, which was a great accomplishment.

Death of George Bush

His son, the former president, put out a statement from the family about his death. It said, "Jeb, Neil, Marvin, Doro and I are saddened to announce that after 94 remarkable years, our dear Dad has died. George H.W. Bush was 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."

If you don't remember, George H. W. Bush was nicknamed "41." His son decided to use this name in the statement from the family. His death comes just a few months after the loss of his wife Barbara Bush. That was a heartbreaking loss and now the family is dealing with this one.

George Bush's history

When George Bush tried to get elected for a second term, he ended up losing to Bill Clinton. This was surprising to a lot of people, but that was how it went down. Luckily, later on, his son was able to get elected to the oval office.

Since his time as a president, he has enjoyed living in Houston. Of course, his wife Barbara has been by his side here until her death a few months ago. He oversaw the building of the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum on the grounds of Texas A&M, in College Station. He had six children with Barbara. They were George, Robin, Jeb, Neil, Marvin, and Doro.

Robin died at age three of leukemia, which of course, wasn't easy on the couple at all.

At one time, he said that he didn't really want people to pay attention to him. The one thing to remember is since he was a president, he will always be remembered and paid attention to regardless. George H. W. Bush will be in history books and talked about for years to come.

He was a man who joined the military on his 18th birthday. The second that he could do it he made the decision to go for it.

George H. W. Bush will be remembered by many. It would not be surprising if they end up showing his funeral on television for everyone to say their goodbyes this great president. He will be remembered often over the next few days and if everyone pays attention they can learn more about this ex-president.
