President H.W. Bush to lie in state in Washington, D.C.

What George H.W. Bush Taught Us All About Governing

While Bush's body was in Houston, the golden lab dutifully laid next to the casket, keeping watch over his former owner. "So he was a terrific guy and he'll be missed".

Relatives accompanying the casket will include his sons, former President George W. Bush and Neil Bush, with members of their immediate families.

Bush had been in and out of the hospital in recent years, primarily due to the Parkinson's disease that Baker said hampered his body's ability to get rid of phlegm, often causing pneumonia.

Former US President George HW Bush dies at 94
The longest living president in USA history, one of his biggest achievements was steering America through the end of the Cold War. President Bush, a World War II naval pilot and Texas oil tycoon, was announced dead in a statement by his office.

On Wednesday, December 5th, Bush's funeral services will take place starting at 11 a.m. ET at the Washington National Cathedral in Washington, D.C.

In the first Persian Gulf War, the crucial moment came at the end of February 1991, when the USA and the global coalition it assembled had succeeded in their goal of driving Iraq's invading army out of Kuwait.

That was a time that saw the end of the Cold War as well as the United States' routing of Iraqi President Saddam Hussein's army in the 1991 Gulf War. "Bush of course was defeated for re-election and most people at the time considered him a failed president" because of a recession during his time in the White House.

Mr Bush was born in 1924 and was shot down in the Pacific during World War Two. He had joined the Navy when he turned 18. The couple was married for 73 years, longer than any other United States presidential couple. He was elected to the first of two terms in Congress in 1967.
