Brian Mulroney remembers George HW Bush as 'a great friend of Canada'

Bush was one of the most popular Presidents in history after the Gulf War, but a recession helped Bill Clinton beat him in a re-election bid.

The statement read: "Hillary and I mourn the passing of President George H.W. Bush and give thanks for his great long life of service, love and friendship".

Only one other US president, John Adams, had a son who also became president. His presence will be sorely missed.

Since the announcement of the death of former president George H.W. Bush, the Houston community is mourning and paying their respects outside the Bush home in the Tanglewood neighborhood. "May he rest in peace", the prime minister said.

James Baker, Bush's former secretary of state, said that in each position Bush held, he "led with strength, integrity, compassion and humility - characteristics that define a truly great man and effective leader". Consider that a Bush was on the ballot in every presidential election but one from 1980 to 2004.

He flew 58 combat missions and was shot down over the Pacific by Japanese anti-aircraft fire. In addition to George W. and Jeb, he is survived by three surviving children, Neil, Marvin and Doro; along with numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Instead of joining his father in banking upon graduation from Yale University, Bush headed to bleak west Texas to break into the rough-and-tumble oil business. He lost, but was chosen as a running mate by Ronald Reagan.

Later he served as head of the American intelligence service, the CIA, and was vice-president before he became President of the United States. In 1988 Bush won the Republican nomination for President and, with Senator Dan Quayle of IN as his running mate, he defeated Massachusetts Governor Michael Dukakis IN the general election.

"He did a lot for his nation, he did a lot for the world and of course relations between Australia and the United States have always been strong and were certainly strong during his presidency", Mr McCormack said.

Iran state television has noted his death as being "like other US presidents who wished to see the collapse of the Islamic Republic". "I send my sincerest condolences to his family, and to the American people".
