Boston (December 1, 2018) – Senator Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.) released the following statement on the death of George H.W. Bush, 41st President of the United States.


“President Bush loved his country and his family and was fiercely dedicated to both. He committed his life to public service and ushered the United States through the end of the Cold War and beyond a world of global nuclear threat. He was a member of the Greatest Generation, and fought for our country with courage and conviction. As servicemember, legislator, diplomat, and executive, President Bush answered the call of duty every day of his life, and the nation will forever be grateful for his service, patriotism, and integrity. My thoughts and prayers are with his family, whom he loved so very much.”
