"Ahepans mourn the passing of President George H.W. Bush".

Scion of a prominent family involved in politics, sports, business and entertainment, he was the longest-lived former president from November 2017 when he outlived Gerald Ford (38th, R) who died aged 93 in 2006; Jimmy Carter (39th, D) is still living at 94.

"George HW Bush's life is a testament to the notion that public service is a noble, joyous calling".

Mulroney said that among the two leaders' joint accomplishments, two stand out: the signing of the Canada-U.S. Air Quality Agreement, known as the acid rain treaty, in 1991; and the negotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement, signed in 1994 after both had left office.

The book George Bush: The Unauthorized Biography by Webster G. Tarpley & Anton Chaitkin has a chapter titled "Poppy and Mommy".

Early Saturday morning, Bush's second-oldest son, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, took to social media to write, "I already miss the greatest human being that I will ever know".

Bush was a toddler when his mother gave him the name, The New York Times reports.

During the trip, Bush spoke at BYU. He said in a statement that Bush's service to the nation "demonstrated how we as a people can draw on our humility, diversity and devotion to our country to meet every challenge with fortitude and confidence".

George H.W. Bush was born on June 12, 1924. From there he won a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives, was appointed Ambassador to the United Nations by President Richard Nixon and chaired the Republican National Committee during the Watergate scandal. In an interview with his biographer, Bush once said of his presidency, "I am lost between the glory of Reagan-monuments everywhere, trumpets, the great hero-and the trials and tribulations of my sons".

"Our deepest sympathies and prayers are with the entire Bush family".
