George HW Bush: Remembering the War Hero and Icon

The passing of the 41st President of United States created waves, both positive and negative. George Herbert Walker Bush, also known as “Poppy”, “George Bush Senior” and “Bush 41”, died in November 30, 2018. He lived the longest among all US presidents, having lived 94 years and 171 days. But having lived the longest is not George Senior’s only remarkable achievement in his life.

George Bush Sr. was born on June 12, 1924 to parents Dorothy Walker Bush and Prescott Sheldon Bush, in Milton, Massachusetts. His father, Prescott, was an investment banker and served as a senator between 1956 and 1963.
