George H.W. Bush Dead At 94


A former president of the United States, George Herbert Walker Bush is dead at the age of 94.

Bush whose career in politics spanned more than 30 years and culminated as the 41st President of the United States died seven months after the death of his wife, Barbara Bush who also died this year.

His office said he died yesterday, November 31st at 10:10 PM in Houston.

In the past years, his health has been declining as he was in and out of the hospital several times. He was admitted to the ICU at the Houston Methodist Hospital back in January 2017 due to pneumonia. Barbara was also admitted with her own health issues. They both recovered and took part in the ceremonial coin toss at Super Bowl 51 together just a few weeks later.

The former President notably sent a letter to then President-elect Donald Trump in January 2017 saying he couldn’t make the inauguration due to doctor’s orders joking it would put him “six feet under” to sit outside in the cold.

Bush’s zinger during his election campaign, “Read my lips: no new taxes,” became an unforgettable moment.

Bush is survived by his 5 children, 17 grandchildren and 8 great grandkids. He also had a daughter, Robin, who died at age 3 from leukemia.
