Former President George H.W. Bush has died at the age of 94, after a career that began as World War II fighter pilot when he was 19, to his son also becoming President and another son the Governor of Florida. The 41st President of the United States lived Bakersfield in 1949 during his oil business days, but lost his bid for a second term to Bill Clinton after a hard fought campaign and a recession that forced him to break his famous campaign pledge, “Read my lips…No new taxes”. He passed Friday night, seven months after Barbara Bush, his wife of 73 years. Bush will be honored with a state funeral at Washington’s National Cathedral.
