Delaney Statement on Passing of President George H.W. Bush


WASHINGTON – Congressman John K. Delaney (MD-6) releases the following statement on the passing of President George H.W. Bush:

“President Bush will be remembered as a dignified, civil and thoughtful leader who led our country during a time of historic global change. President Bush was a courageous and decorated pilot who served in World War II, an international statesman and a generous and compassionate spirit who spoke of a kinder, gentler America and a thousand points of light. President Bush believed in more than just himself and more than just his party – he believed passionately in America’s moral purpose and in principle. The country he loved was better off because of his service, leadership and example. We need more leaders like President George H.W. Bush.

“April and I join the millions of others sending our prayers condolences to the Bush family. Rest in peace, President Bush, you will be truly missed but never forgotten.”
