In a statement, former President Bill Clinton described Bush's long record of service in the military, Congress, the Central Intelligence Agency and as president, where he served from 1989 to 1993. Through his Points of Light initiative and other projects, he espoused a uniquely American volunteer spirit, fostering bipartisan support for citizen service and inspiring millions to embrace community volunteerism as a cherished responsibility.

"The world has lost a great and decent man".

"President George H.W. Bush lived a life of public service that demonstrated an unquestionable dedication and love of his country. We will not forget his importance also for our own freedom during the turbulent times of the fall of the Soviet Union". "I don't know much about him, but I know he's a blowhard", the elder Bush said. His wife Barbara died on on April 17-one day after her funeral, Bush was hospitalized with an infection that had spread to his blood.
