Former President George W. Bush called him "the best dad a son or daughter could ask for".

"President Bush is a personal hero of mine and a major inspiration in my life".

Bush will be honored with a funeral at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C.in the coming days.

"I think we both knew that that was probably the last visit we were going to have".

A World War II veteran, President Bush's service to the nation spanned decades and across numerous roles from serving as a member of Congress, Ambassador to the United Nations, and Director of the Central Intelligence Agency.

Former President Barack Obama said in a statement: "America has lost a patriot and humble servant in George Herbert Walker Bush". "We will not forget his importance also for our own freedom during the turbulent times of the fall of the Soviet Union".

Bush Sr's death comes eight months after his wife of 73 years, Barbara, passed away in April.

Bush, the 41st president of the United States, lived longer than any of his predecessors.

President Ezra Taft Benson and President Thomas S. Monson attended Bush's inauguration in 1989 and the Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square, then known as the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, sang.

Governor Roy Cooper has ordered all USA and state flags at state facilities to be lowered to half-staff immediately in honor and remembrance of George H.W. Bush. The Democrat added that through the Points of Light initiative that Bush founded, which promotes volunteerism, he embraced "a uniquely American volunteer spirit" and bipartisan support.

Current President Trump also shared a few words, saying that Bush had "sound judgement" and "common sense".
