W. Bush, the 41st USA president, dies

Former US President George Bush dies at age 94, family spokesman says

The official spokesman for George H.W. Bush announced Friday night George H.W. Bush died at age 94.

White House advisor Kellyanne Conway tweeted: "Heartfelt sympathy and deep condolences to the entire Bush family on the passing of our 41st President, George HW Bush".

As the last USA president to have served in World War II and the country's last Cold War leader, the end of Mr Bush's time in the White House marked the end of a political era.

Former First Lady Barbara Bush died in April, at which time the former president had to bury the love of his life. The Republican was defeated in his bid for a second term by Democrat Bill Clinton.

Mr Bush was the president who led the U.S. at the end of the Cold War.

Former US President George HW Bush has died at age 94. In recent years, Bush used a motorized scooter or wheelchair for mobility.

In a statement from his office, Bush was described as a naval aviator, oil pioneer and the nation's 41st president.

The senior Bush had a lifetime of public service before he became president - as a young Navy pilot in World War II, Texas congressman, Central Intelligence Agency director and faithful vice president to Ronald Reagan.
