December 1st, 2018

Palo Alto, CA – Congresswoman Anna G. Eshoo released the following statement on the death of President George H.W. Bush, who passed away at the age of 94:

“Last night our country lost one of the greatest of patriots, President George Herbert Walker Bush. His entire life was spent in service to our country, first as a fighter pilot in World War II; as a Member of Congress; as Ambassador to China; as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations; as Chairman of the Republican National Committee; as Director of the CIA; as Vice President; and as the 41st President of the United States.

“President Bush was a humble man and a statesman.  His lifelong values were his faith, his family and his country.

“He is now reunited with the great love of his life, Barbara Pierce Bush, and their daughter Robin.

“President Bush’s legacy is a great one and how he lived his life will always stand as a model for generations to come.

“On behalf of those I am so privileged to represent, we offer our condolences to the entire Bush family and thank them for sharing their father, grandfather and great-grandfather with the country he so loved and served with dignity, kindness and goodness.”
