George H.W. Bush, 41st President of the United States of America, died peacefully on November 30, 2018 at the age of 94. He passed away at his home in Houston, Texas, at 10:10 pm.

Bush’s death occurred after the death of his wife of 73 years, Barbara Bush, who died on April 17. At her funeral, he was pictured in a wheelchair gazing at her flower-cover casket mournfully, acknowledging the end of their life-long love.

On November 30, his last day, Bush was asked whether he wanted to go to the hospital. He said no, and that he was ready to go join Robin, his daughter who died of leukemia at the age of three, and Barbara.

Bush is survived by his sons, George, Jeb, Neil, and Marvin, his daughter, Dorothy, and his 17 grandchildren. Bush will lie in state at the U.S Capitol, then will return to Texas, where he will be buried alongside Barbara and Robin.
