George H.W. Bush’s love for baseball

Former US President George Bush dies at age 94, family spokesman says

George H.W. Bush - the upper-crust war hero-turned-oilman and diplomat who steered America through the end of the Cold War as president and led a political dynasty that saw his son win the White House - died on Friday.

"While our hearts are heavy today, they are also filled with gratitude", former president Barack Obama said in a statement.

Attending the G20 meeting in Buenos Aires, Argentina, the Russian leader noted that Bush had done a lot to "strengthen" the cooperation with Moscow in terms of "global security." .

"As a Congressman, Ambassador, Vice President, and President, George H.W. Bush believed deeply in the power of worldwide cooperation". He was a World War II veteran, a congressman from Texas, head of the Central Intelligence Agency and a vice president.

"He certainly was a man who made sure politics was a respectable profession and he understood its obligations to everyone, not just the powerful, not just the rich, not just the mighty, but to the people who were absolutely at the bottom of the heap as well". In 2011, Obama awarded Bush the highest USA civilian honor, the Medal of Freedom.

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas recalled in his statement Bush's significant contribution to the reunification of Germany.

"As our nation mourns his passing, our entire Astros organization sends heartfelt condolences to the Bush family". He studied at Phillips Academy Andover boarding school and enlisted in the US Navy at the age of 18.

He flew 58 combat missions during World War II.

After the war, Bush graduated from Yale University and started his path as a politician.

As he accepted the Republican Party's nomination for president in 1988, Bush pleaded for a "kinder, gentler nation".
