Journal Pioneer - - WORLD -

COL­LEGE STA­TION, Texas - The U.S. Se­cret Ser­vice has ended its de­tail for Ge­orge H.W. Bush af­ter nearly 40 years of pro­tect­ing the for­mer pres­i­dent, who was known by the code name “Tim­ber­wolf.”

Bush spokesman Jim Mc­Grath says the agents’ de­tail of­fi­cially ended at 6 a.m. Fri­day fol­low­ing Bush’s burial on Thurs­day at his pres­i­den­tial li­brary at Texas A&M Univer­sity.

Bush died on Nov. 30 at the age of 94. He was buried next to his wife, Bar­bara, and their daugh­ter Robin, who died at age 3. Se­cret Ser­vice agents served as hon­orary pall­bear­ers dur­ing some of this week’s events honour­ing the 41st pres­i­dent. On Twit­ter, the agency paid trib­ute to Bush and shared pho­tos from 2013 , when Bush shaved his head in sup­port of an agent’s 2-year-old son who had leukemia.
