December 1, 2018… “We mourn the passing of former President George H.W. Bush. He was a gentleman and a patriot, who mission by successive mission, as a WWII Airman, Congressman, UN Ambassador, RNC Chairman, Chief U.S. Liaison Officer in China, CIA Director, Vice President and President, served his country humbly and well. He transcended politics as a role model for future generations, including with his beloved Barbara, raising two sons who also had careers of accomplishment in public life.
“America is better for his many significant achievements, especially in the foreign arena with the successful Gulf War, the peaceful end to the Cold War, the demise of the Soviet Union and the reunification of Germany. His self deprecating wit, compassion and devotion to service will cement him in history as one of our country’s exemplary leaders.
“On behalf of the entire New York Republican State Committee, we offer our deepest condolences to the Bush family.”
