Fitzpatrick Statement on Passing of President George H.W. Bush
Langhorne, PA—Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick (PA-08) released a statement today on the passing of President George Herbert Walker Bush:
“America mourns as we lose a true American hero and true statesman, George Herbert Walker Bush.
As one of the youngest Navy pilots during WWII, George H.W. Bush demonstrated remarkable patriotism and selfless humility. Through his steadfast leadership, President Bush guided our nation to the peaceful end of the Cold War, underscored with the demise of the Berlin Wall. May his profound legacy of public service serve as a reminder to all Americans, “We as a people have such a purpose today. It is to make kinder the face of the nation and gentler the face of the world.”
Now he is reunited with Barbara, his beloved wife. I send my sincerest condolences to the Bush Family, who selflessly shared President Bush’s life with our nation for over seven decades. Rest in peace, Mr. President.”
