Former US President George H.W. Bush has died, the family's spokesperson said Saturday.
Eight years later, though, he was able to watch his son, George W. Bush, become the 43rd president of the United States. The aircraft carrier on which he served, the San Jacinto, was awarded the Presidential Unit Citation.
George W Bush would go on to be elected president in 2000 after Mr Clinton and served two terms. The family also thanked those who cared for and prayed for their beloved dad in recent days.
His wife Barbara died earlier this year on April 17. They were the longest-married presidential couple in USA history.
He was the 41st USA president between 1989 and 1993, after serving two terms as vice-president to Ronald Reagan. One of the youngest pilots in the Navy, he flew 58 missions off the carrier USS San Jacinto. He made two unsuccessful runs for Senate, but would later serve in various political capacities - including as the U.S. ambassador the United Nations, Republican National Committee chair, and Central Intelligence Agency director.
Only one other USA president, John Adams, had a son who also became president.
In late 1989, Bush sent United States troops to Panama to oust strongman Manuel Noriega.
Bush holds the esteemed stature of steering America through the end of the Cold War. Later, he sent troops to the Mideast to repel Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein in his attempted takeover of oil-rich Kuwait.
During his four years in the White House, Bush ordered a military operation in Panama to overthrow its drug-trafficking leader, Manuel Noriega.
