George Bush Senior dies at the age of 94

George H. W. Bush, the 41st US president, dies

Inside the George H.W. Bush Library and Museum in College Station, some of Bush's greatest treasures can be found, including 44 million pages of documents, 2 million photographs, thousands of sound and video recordings and 100,000 artifacts.

Camera IconFILE - In this March 29, 2015, file photo, former President George H.W. Bush and his wife Barbara Bush, left, speak before a college basketball regional final game between Gonzaga and Duke, in the NCAA basketball tournament in Houston.

But he suffered the ignominy of being a one-term president, denied a second term over a weak economy when he lost the 1992 election to upstart Democrat Bill Clinton.

"George HW Bush's life is a testament to the notion that public service is a noble, joyous calling". The president did not attend McCain's funeral, where Obama and George W Bush both delivered tributes. He ran against one of Bush's sons, Jeb Bush, in the GOP presidential primaries in 2016, and he was sharply critical of the presidency of another son, George W. Bush. They had been married for 73 years. Before getting the keys to the White House, he served eight years as the vice president of Republican icon Ronald Reagan.

News of his death last night was confirmed by his son, George W Bush, in a statement.

Bush was a steadfast force on the worldwide stage for decades, from his stint as an envoy to Beijing to his eight years as vice president and his one term as commander in chief from 1989 to 1993.

As he accepted the Republican Party's nomination for president in 1988, Bush pleaded for a "kinder, gentler nation".

Clinton's triumph marked a generational shift in United States politics from those, like Bush, forged by the struggle of World War II.

Bush did not endorse fellow Republican Trump, the eventual victor of the 2016 presidential election, who attacked both Jeb and George W. Bush during his campaign.

Former First Lady Barbara Bush died in April, at which time the former president had to bury the love of his life.

In the run-up to Operation Desert Storm, the first Gulf War, Bush deftly built a broad coalition based in Saudi Arabia for the task of removing Iraqi forces from Kuwait, secured United Nations backing for the mission, and, in a sign of his ability to adapt to the changing world, issued a joint declaration with the Soviets condemning Saddam's invasion.

"I think Dad got sick on goal so that he could be with her", Jeb Bush said during his eulogy to his mother.

Only one other United States president, John Adams, had a son who also became president.

In 1980, he became Vice President of the U.S. after losing the primaries to Ronald Reagan, who later won the general election.

They added: "Our thoughts are with the entire Bush family tonight - and all who were inspired by George and Barbara's example".

His presidency coincided with a period of world upheaval that saw the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the fall of the Berlin Wall and the start of America's post-Cold War conflicts.

During World War Two, he was an aviator against the Japanese before being shot down in September 1944 while on a bombing raid.
