A FRIENDSHIP OF MORE THAN 60 YEARS

PRESIDENT GEORGE H.W. BUSH, 1924 – 2018

STATEMENT OF JAMES A. BAKER, III, HONORARY CHAIR OF THE BAKER INSTITUTE

A FRIENDSHIP OF MORE THAN 60 YEARS

The legacy of George H.W. Bush will be forever etched in the history of America and the world. It is a lifelong record of selfless patriotic service to our nation. He was the youngest Navy pilot in World War II, a Texas congressman, UN ambassador, America’s first envoy to China, CIA director, vice president and president. In each and every one of these positions, he led with strength, integrity, compassion and humility — characteristics that define a truly great man and effective leader. With a singularly unique consistency, halways demonstrated these traits, whether on the global stage or interacting with people in his everyday life. His passion was a deep love of family and our country. It was my pleasure and great joy to have had him as my special friend for more than 60 years. Susan joins me in grieving the passing of our dear friend and sending the entire Bush family our deepest love and condolences.
