WASHINGTON - Former President George H.W. Bush leaves behind five children, 17 grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren following his passing at the age of 94.
One of his grandchildren, George P. Bush, the oldest child of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and nephew of 43rd President George W. Bush, posted a heartwarming and touching tribute on Twitter to his late grandfather – calling him “the greatest man I ever knew.”
My grandfather was the greatest man I ever knew. His life spanned the American Century—he fought in World War II ... took part in the Texas oil boom ... served out a distinguished career in public service including serving as president during the final days of the Cold War. pic.twitter.com/6i68EPVC3j— George P.

Along the way, he married the love of his life and was a father to six, including a president and two governors. But to me, he will always be Gampy. The man who taught me to fish in Maine, to throw a horseshoe and to swing a baseball bat lefty. pic.twitter.com/5QpiwbHN5I— George P. Bush (@georgepbush) December 1, 2018
He was more than a great man; he was a good man. His courage was matched by his compassion; and his dedication to country was equaled only by his devotion to his family. Gampy, we love you and we will miss you. But we will never forget you. pic.twitter.com/n7uFwO6xxw— George P. Bush (@georgepbush) December 1, 2018
