  • Late George H.W. Bush valued ‘constructive dialogue’ with Russia – Putin

White House advisor Kellyanne Conway tweeted: "Heartfelt sympathy and deep condolences to the entire Bush family on the passing of our 41st President, George HW Bush".

Central time was announced in a statement issued by longtime spokesman Jim McGrath.

Bush died at 10.40pm CT on Friday, his office confirmed in a statement. The family also thanked those who cared for and prayed for their beloved dad in recent days.

Bush presided during the collapse of the Soviet Union and the final months of the Cold War.

He lost his bid for re-election to Bill Clinton in a campaign in which businessman H. Ross Perot took nearly 19 percent of the vote as an independent candidate.

In April, he was admitted to Houston Methodist Hospital, a day after a funeral was held for his wife, Barbara Bush.

Bush married Barbara Pierce in January 1945, shortly before the war ended, and the couple went on to have six children, including one, Robin, who died as a child.

During World War Two, he was an aviator against the Japanese before being shot down in September 1944 while on a bombing raid.

In 2012, the former president announced that he had vascular Parkinsonism.

As the last USA president to have served in World War II and the country's last Cold War leader, the end of Mr Bush's time in the White House marked the end of a political era. While our hearts are heavy today, they are also filled with gratitude.
