George W. Bush : “Jeb, Neil, Marvin, Doro, and I are saddened to announce that after 94 remarkable years, our dear Dad has died. George HW Bush was a man of the highest character and the best dad a son or daughter could ask for. The whole 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. “ Jeb Bush Jr. : Nothing gave Gampy more joy than service to others, especially supporting and caring for those who risk making the ultimate sacrifice every day. His leadership taught us to be kinder and gentler, to love each other. We will miss him dearly.
George P. Bush : My grandfather was the greatest man I ever knew. His life spanned the American Century ̵
1; he fought in World War II … took part in the Texas oil boom … served out a distinguished career in public service including serving as president during the final days of the Cold War.
He was more than a great man; he was a good man. His courage was matched by his compassion; og hans dedikation til land var ensidet kun af hans hengivenhed til hans familie. Gampy, we love you and we will miss you.
Along the way, he married the love of his life and was a father to six, including a president and two governors. But to me, he will always be Gampy. The man who taught me to fish in Maine, to throw a horseshoe and to swing a baseball bat lefty.
President Donald J. Trump and First Lady Melania Trump : Melania and I join with a grieving Nation to mourn the loss or former President George HW Bush, who passed away last night.
Through his essential authenticity, disarming white, and unwavering commitment to faith, family and country, President Bush inspired generations of his fellow Americans to public service – to be, in his words, ” a thousand points of light “illuminating the greatness, hope, and opportunity of America to the world.
President Bush has always found a way to set the bar higher. As a young man, he captained the Yale baseball team, and then went on to serve as the youngest aviator in the United States Navy during the Second World War. Later in life, he rose to the pinnacle of American politics as a Congressman from Texas, andvoy to China, Director of Central Intelligence, Vice President of eight years to President Ronald Reagan, and finally President of the United States.
With sound Judgment (SIC) Common sense, and unflappable leadership, President Bush guided our nation, and the world, to a peaceful and victorious conclusion of the Cold War. As President, he set the stage for the decades of prosperity that has followed. Og med alt han fullførte, var han ydmyk, efter at han havde løst det stille kald til tjeneste, som gav ham en klar følelse af retning.
Sammen med hans fulde liv til service til landet, vil vi huske præsident Bush for hans hengivenhed til familien – especially the love of his life, Barbara. His example lives on, and will continue to stir future Americans to pursue a greater cause. Vi hjerter med hans tab, og vi, med amerikanerne, sender vores bønner til hele familien Bush, som vi hedder livet og legacy of 41.
President Obama : America has lost a patriot and humble servant in George Herbert Walker Bush. Mens våre hjerter er tunge idag, de er også fylt med gratitude. Not only for the years he spent as our forty-first president, but for the more than 70 years he spent in devoted service to the country he loved – from a decorated naval aviator who almost gave his life in World War II, two Commander -in-Chief of our Armed Forces, with plenty of posts along the way. Ambassador to the United Nations. Director of Central Intelligence. U.S. Envoy to China. Vice President of the United States.
George H.W. Bush’s life is a testament to the notion that public service is a noble, joyous calling. And he did tremendously good along the journey. Expanding America’s promise to new immigrants and people with disabilities. Reducing the scourge of nuclear weapons and building a broad international coalition to expel a dictator from Kuwait. Og da demokratiske revolutioner blomstrede over Østeuropa, det var hans stødige, diplomatiske hånd, som muliggjorde en prestation, engang trodde alting – ending the Cold War without firing a shot.
It’s a legacy of service that may never be matched, even though he’d want to try all of us.
After seventy-three years of marriage, George and Barbara Bush are together again now, two points of light that never dimmed, two points of light that ignited countless others with their example – the example of a man who, even after commanding the world’s mightiest military, once said “I got more of a kick out of being one of the founders of the YMCA in Midland, Texas back in 1952 than almost anything I’ve done.”
What a testament to the qualities that make this country great. Service to others. Commitment to leaving behind something better. Sacrifice in the name of lifting this country closer to its founding ideals.
Former Vice President Al Gore : President George H.W. Bush served our nation with extraordinary integrity and grace. I will remember him for his personal kindness and for his love of this country. He earned bipartisan respect for speaking up and taking action for what he believed was right, even when doing so was unpopular. He inspired countless Americans to volunteer and improve their communities through his point of life Foundation. President Bush leaves behind an American legacy of a lifetime of service that will be revered for generations.
President Bill and Hillary Clinton: Hillary and I mourn the pass of President George H.W. Bush, and give thanks for his great long life of service, love, and friendship. I will be forever grateful for the friendship we formed. From the moment I met him as a young governor invited to his home in Kennebunkport, I was struck by the kindness he showed to Chelsea, by his innate and genuine decency, and by his devotion to Barbara, his children, and their growing bread.
Few Americans have been-or will ever be able to match President Bush’s record of service to the United States and the joy he took every day from it; from his military service in World War II, to his work in Congress, the United Nations, China, the Central Intelligence Agency, the Vice Presidency and the Presidency, where he worked to move the post Cold War world towards greater unity, peace, and Freedom. He never stopped serving. I saw it up close, working with him on tsunami relief in Asia and here at home after Hurricane Katrina.
I am profoundly grateful for every minute. I spent a lot of time with President Bush and will always hold our friendship as one of my life’s greatest gifts. Our hearts and prayers are with George, Jeb, Neil, Marvin, Doro, their families, and the entire Bush clan.

Australian Prime Minister John Howard: George Herbert Walker Bush, 41st President of the United States, was in office when arguably the most momentous event in post Second World War affairs occurred – the collapse of The Communist Empire of the Soviet Union.
Initially as Vice President of Ronald Reagan, and later as President himself, he played a major role in shaping those historic years.
The late President had an endearing sense of humor and always exhibited immense public grace. He was the patriarch of a great American family.
At all times he was a true friend of Australia. He bezocht ons land op een aantal gelegenheden. He was the first American president to address a joint sitting of our national parliament.
I extend my deep sympathy to the late President’s family. He exemplified the best of his nation’s values in both war and peace.
Arnold Schwarzenegger : Today, we’ve lost a great hero. George Bush was an inspiration to all Americans and we will miss him dearly. From the day he first put on his U.S. Navy flight suit and took off into the unknown, he always put his country first. Han tog mange job i hele hans lange karriere, og alle delte en distinkt træk: offentlig service. His greatest legacy is that pure American spirit, that commitment to selflessness that drove him until the very end.
George Bush embodied everything that was born in a time that seemed to produce an endless supply of heroes. Made the Greatest Generation Great.
I will always be grateful to him for his friendship, for embracing me and imparting just a fraction of his wisdom during our time together. Några av mine mest kända minnesar är att släda med honom på Camp David och inspirera Amerika att gå med i vår fitnesskrusade genom att vara värd för Great American Workout med honom på The White House lawn och lyssna på hans talrådgivning när vi föll mellan kampanj rallies. I will never forget the pride I felt the day he appointed me Chairman of the President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports. I loved to hear him surprise people with his wild side – explaining the pure joy he felt as he flew and jumped out of planes. I also loved to hear him explain his passion for this country – it was a true love that knew no petty boundaries or party lines. He taught me so much, but most of all, he taught me the power of serving a cause greater than yourself. I count myself lucky for many reasons; George Bush a mentor, I can not help but think I’m the luckiest man in America.
President Bush has left us for one last flight but his destination is not unknown. He’s flying in the arms of the love of his life, Barbara.

I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to work for him , to learn from him and to experience his deep and abiding commitment to his fellow citizens. He was a mentor to me and a dear friend.
President Bush’s legacy is deep and broad: the many people that he touched, the difference that he made in the life of the country and the impact that he had beyond America’s shores. We will never forget his steady and inspired leadership in guiding the world to the peaceful end of the Cold War.
Now he is in God’s loving embrace with Mrs. Barbara Bush, his beloved wife of so many years. He has finished his race with honor and dignity. All who knew him and loved him – especially his remarkable family – will miss him. Yet, he lives with us in spirit. Rest well, Mr. President.
