He was the last of the Second World War generation to serve in high office, the 41st president of the United States, and the father of the 43rd president. Leaders around the world have paid tribute to George H. W. Bush, who has died at the age of 94. He will be honoured with a state funeral, and President Trump will designate December 5th as a national day of mourning. His son George W. Bush described him as “a man of the highest character,” saying the entire family was deeply grateful for his life and love.
