    Casket of Barbara Bush with flowers on top

    The 41st president of the United States, George Herbert Walker Bush, has passed away at the age of 94, as previously covered by the Inquisitr. His death follows just months behind that of his late wife, Barbara, who passed away on April 17 of this year. What some people do and some people don’t know about George Sr. is the death of his wife was not the first time the former POTUS was forced to say goodbye to someone very near and dear to his heart.

    As The Washington Post reminds us, George and Barbara were forced to say goodbye to their eldest daughter, Pauline Robinson “Robin” Bush, just shy of her fourth birthday on October 11, 1953, when the young girl lost her battle to leukemia.

    Speaking with his wife Barbara to his granddaughter, Jenna Bush Hager, during an interview with TODAY, George Sr. revealed he believed his late daughter Robin was the first person he would see when he passed away.

    President George H.W. Bush and his wife, Mrs. Barbara Bush attend the HBO Documentary special screening

    George Herbert Walker Bush, the 41st POTUS, has passed away at the age of 94. He is survived by his five children: George Jr., Jeb, Dorothy, Neil, and Marvin. George and his wife Barbara were also the parents of a sixth child named Pauline Robinson Bush – affectionately nicknamed Robin – who passed away on October 11, 1953, just a few months before her fourth birthday.

    According to Heavy, Robin was George and Barbara’s second child and their eldest daughter. She was born on December 20, 1949, three years after her older brother George Jr. It was not until a decade later in 1959 that George and Barbara gave birth to their second daughter Dorothy, who many who don’t know about Robin presume to be their only daughter.

    Robin Was Diagnosed With Leukemia

    George Bush at his wifes funeral in wheel chair surrounded by loved ones

    Net worth is the sum total of all financial and non-financial assets owned by a single person. At the time of his death, Celebrity Net Worth determined George H.W. Bush’s net worth to be $25 million. Many other outlets estimated the net worth of Bush Sr. to range somewhere between $20 and $25 million, according to Heavy.

    George’s wife, Barbara, was also estimated to have a net worth of $25 million at the time of her passing.

    Two decades ago, The New York Times estimated George’s net worth to be just $2 million. According to the publication, the bulk of Bush’s wealth was the result of buying and selling various properties at the time.

    Speaking to the publication, George’s brother, Jonathan, reveals making money was never part of his brother’s long-term plan.

    ”He had enough money to be in a public career, and that’s all that mattered to him,” Jonathan continued to explain.

    Former United States President George Bush

    The last day of November will now be remembered as the day the world lost a great man with the passing of George H.W. Bush. The 41st president of the United States and father of the 43rd president died at the age of 94 and the nation is entering a severe state of grief. Wednesday, December 5, 2018, has already been declared as a National Day of Mourning, but the world is already keeping him alive with stories, memories, and pictures.

    Known to many by the “H.W.” in his name, there are some who never even knew that those initials stand for Herbert Walker. He took the office of president on January 20, 1989, and that was after serving eight years as the vice president for Ronald Reagan.

    George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton stand together at a 2005 event.

    George H.W. Bush’s passing has cast a light on the legacy of a president loved by those on both sides of the aisle and has brought new attention to the classy letter he left behind for Bill Clinton when he left the White House.

    The 1992 presidential campaign was especially fierce, at least by the standards of the day, as young upstart Bill Clinton looked to unseat one of the most established politicians in Washington history in George H.W. Bush. The race was tight and Clinton’s victory was shocking to many, but Bush still managed to handle his transition out of the White House with grace.

    George H.W. Bush passed away on Friday, November 30, 2018, and it signaled the loss of the 41st president of the United States.

    Throughout his 94 years, Bush accomplished so much throughout his life and Inquisitr recently captured it in pictures for all to see. While there are many who are honoring him and his legacy with their own thoughts, there are those who actually knew him who have even more unique ways of remembering the former president.

    George H.W. Bush appears at the Super Bowl

    The New York Stock Exchange is set to close on Wednesday in honor of George H.W. Bush, who passed away this week.

    As The Hill reported, the NYSE announced that it will observe a minute of silence on Monday to honor the life of the late president and then will close on Wednesday as part of a National Day of Mourning issued by President Donald Trump.

    “The President will designate Wednesday, December 5th as a National Day Of Mourning. He and the First Lady will attend the funeral at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C.,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement (via Bloomberg).

    As The Hill‘s report noted, it is common for U.S. financial markets to close for a day when observing the death of a president. This last occurred in 2007 with the passing of Gerald Ford.

    As will be well-known to many people, Richard Feynman was a great popularizer of physics, and wrote entertaining and informative classics like Surely You’re Joking, Mr. Feynman, The Pleasure of Finding Things Out, QED: The Strange Theory of Light and Matter, and What Do You Care What Other People Think? As The New York Times reminds us, Feynman also played a crucial role in determining what had caused the devastating loss of the space shuttle Challenger.

    mugshot of luke sky walker

    A Tennessee man named Luke Sky Walker is not living up to the ideals of his namesake from the Star Wars universe, allegedly eschewing the life of a Jedi Knight in favor of a life of petty crime.

    As Jedi Master Yoda taught in the Star Wars franchise, a Jedi does craves not things like adventure or excitement, instead committing themselves to lives of service and meditation. Those who reject those values are said to have been lured by the Dark Side of The Force. And it appears that Luke Sky Walker has been deceived by the Dark Side. Or, let’s call it the Dim Side, since his purported crimes are more on the order of petty theft rather than genocide or child murder, like some of the evil Jedis of the Star Wars universe have done.

    GI Carrying Backpack and Folder

    A bipartisan group of Congressmen are calling for Department of Veteran’s Affairs Inspector General to investigate allegations made by veterans that the VA is refusing to reimburse them for unpaid and underpaid benefits under the Forever GI Bill, according to the Hill.

    Anderson Cooper attending the Billboard Women in Music 2016 event

    George H. W. Bush passed away on Friday night, after years of battling health issues. Television personality and journalist Anderson Cooper gave a compelling eulogy on CNN that captured the ups and downs of the politician’s life and legacy. Bush was 94 years old at the time of his death. His wife, Barbara Bush, passed away eight months ago.

    Although he served only one term and was infamous for breaking his “read my lips: no new taxes” promise, President Bush also earned a lot of praise from both sides of the aisle. As the New York Times reported, many have referred to Bush as the nation’s most successful single-term president.

    Police tape in front of a crime scene.

    Peter Gouldstone lived through the second World War and a fierce bombarding of his native London, but the 98-year-old war veteran was not able to survive an armed robbery that left him badly beaten last month.

    The North London man had suffered multiple injuries after burglars broke into his home and attacked him, the Guardian reported. The attack left Gouldstone hospitalized with serious brain bleeding, the report noted. Prior to the attack, the 98-year-old man required regular medical care and had limited mobility, and doctors said he was not able to recover from the injuries he suffered at the hands of unidentified burglars.

    The robbery took place on November 6, with police saying thieves stole a large television and other items from the elderly man’s home. Whoever robbed the house also left the vulnerable man badly beaten, and police from Scotland Yard said he may have been in the home for up to 20 hours before he was found.

    a child sliding down a playground slide

    A vandal or vandals taped scalpel blades to a children’s slide in England, putting anyone who used it at risk of being horribly maimed, BBC News is reporting. Fortunately, the vandalism was caught before anyone could get hurt.

    On Friday, the Ormskirk and Burscough Police Department posted a warning on Facebook about the act of vandalism, which had been discovered at the Winifred Lane Play area in Aughton.

    “Whoever did this could have caused serious injury to a child – please be assured we are fully investigating this matter.”

    It remains unclear, as of this writing, how the vandalism was discovered, and by whom.

    Local ward Councillor David Westley said that the park is run by the local council, and that they’ll be checking surveillance-camera footage. If they see anything suspicious, they’ll be forwarding it to the police.

    “I’m absolutely horrified. It’s impossible to comprehend why anyone would do such a thing.”

    Similarly, park board member Doreen Stephenson was also appalled.

    Bush 41

    On September 5, 1989, President George H.W. Bush — who died on Friday at the age of 94 — delivered his first nationally televised address from the Oval Office, a speech designed to announce his administration’s anti-drug policy. During that speech, preserved for history by C-Span, Bush illustrated his point with a dramatic prop. He held up a bag of crack cocaine that he said had been “seized” in a city park directly across from the White House.

    Composite photo of Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston

    Although they’ve been divorced for more than a decade, Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston’s relationship is still fodder for tabloid gossip. Stories speculating about a rekindled romance between them have become particularly prevalent now that their marriages to other people have fallen apart. One of the more recent published rumors has been that Aniston invited Pitt to her 50th birthday party.

    But celebrity rumor watchdog, Gossip Cop, is on the case and they report that the story is not true. As Gossip Cop reports, an alleged tipster told Heat about Pitt’s purported invite to the birthday bash. “He’s been told about the party and promised Jen he’ll be there, barring a catastrophe. Brad agrees there’s no need for their friendship to be under the radar anymore and he’s touched that she wants to make this point on such a special occasion,” the questionable insider said.

    George H.W. Bush throws out the first pitch before the Texas Rangers Opening Day game

    President George H.W. Bush, who died yesterday at the age of 94, was an avid sportsman dating back to his days as a first baseman at Yale University. His lifelong love of baseball stayed with him, as did his university ball glove, which he reportedly kept oiled and always ready for a game of catch.

    Bush enjoyed other outdoor activities, including fishing, golf, tennis, and even skydiving, but baseball always remained his favorite past time, says USA Today. The former president would talk about his days playing baseball at Yale where he recalls he was a better fielder than a batter. He would recall participating in two of the first NCAA Baseball championships.

    “A lot of us on the team were (World War II) veterans and we had come back from the war, so maybe that made it a little less apprehensive. On the other hand, it didn’t deduct from our enthusiasm and our desire to win, which we did not do.”

    flags at half-staff surround the statue of liberty

    Donald Trump has ordered American flags to be lowered to half-staff to mourn the passing of the 41st president, George H.W. Bush, who died on Saturday, KRQE-TV (Albuquerque) is reporting.

    Trump, who is in Argentina for the G-20 summit, issued a proclamation that all flags must be lowered to that position and remain so for 30 days, in keeping with tradition.

    “I invite the people of the world who share our grief to join us in this solemn observance.”

    The tradition of lowering flags to half-staff (or “half-mast” if referring to a flag on a sailing vessel) dates back to the 1600s and is used internationally as a symbol of mourning (or in some cases, distress or something else entirely). In the U.S., federal laws give the president the power to issue an executive order dictating that flags be lowered to half-staff, and for how long they must remain so.
