George Herbert Walker Bush, war hero, Republican statesman, and 41st president of the United States, died Friday night at his Houston home. He was 94 and suffered from a form of Parkinson’s disease that had confined him to a wheelchair since 2012.
Bush began his presidency on Jan. 20, 1989, and led the country during an era of tumultuous foreign politics in a fragile, rapidly changing world. He was a man of traditional values who spoke unashamedly about his faith, loved country music, and sparked a collective national gasp when he admitted he hated broccoli.
