On Friday night, after a lengthy battle with Parkinson’s disease and other ailments, our 41st president, George H.W. Bush, died in his Houston home. He was 94.

As tributes poured in over the weekend, he was celebrated for being “great in his character, leading with decency and integrity” according to House Speaker Paul Ryan. 

Our beloved Barak Obama took to Twitter to honor him as a “patriot and humble servant” who was a “testament to the notion that public service is a noble, joyous calling.”

In a touching tribute published by the Washington Post, former president Bill Clinton described him as an “honorable, gracious and decent man who believed in the United States, our Constitution, our institutions and our shared future.” 

“He also had a natural humanity,” Clinton wrote. “Always hoping with all his heart that others’ journeys would include some of the joy that his family, his service and his adventures gave him.” Visit www.theroot.com to read the full article.
