DNA Sunday (Mumbai) - - FRONT PAGE - —PTI Re­port, P12

Hous­ton: Ge­orge Her­bert Walker Bush, the 41st pres­i­dent of the US who led Amer­ica dur­ing the dra­matic col­lapse of the So­viet Union and en­gi­neered the de­feat of an au­da­cious Iraqi in­va­sion of Kuwait, died here on Fri­day. He was 94.

His death, which was an­nounced by his of­fice, came less than eight months af­ter that of his wife of 73 years, Bar­bara Bush.

“Jeb, Neil, Marvin, Doro, and I are sad­dened to an­nounce that af­ter 94 re­mark­able years, our dear Dad has died,” Ge­orge Bush Jr, who went on to serve as the 43rd US pres­i­dent, said in a state­ment.

He was “a man of the high­est char­ac­ter and the best dad a son or daugh­ter could ask for. The en­tire 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,” Bush Jr added.
