George H.W. Bush Dies at 94

The death of former President George H.W. Bush was a shell shocker for many residents of the United States. He died on November 30th at the age of 94 years old. Bush was America’s 41st president and  one of only eleven people to serve just one full term as president. Bush’s death falls just around eight months after previous first lady Barbara Bush. President Bush not only served one full term as President of the United States but also as the 45th Vice President. Bush Graduated from Yale in the 1950s, later serving in the Military as a U.S Navy officer where he served in World War 2. The U.S. Navy had some kind words to say to the Ex Officer and President, “fair winds and following seas” which means “fair off my friend and hope the road ahead is well”. The death of former President Bush stirred many people, he spent 73 of his 94 years of his life married to his wife and previous First Lady Barbara Bush who just previously died in April. Bush’s funeral will be held on Wednesday, December 5 2018 in the National Cathedral in Washington D.C. After the ceremony Bush’s body will be transported to the Presidential Library in Texas. Trump has declared December 5th a national mourning day which means almost all federal workers will be excused from work and their agencies will be closed.
