Acting Premier Walter Roban has extended condolences on the passing of former U.S. President George H.W. Bush, who died late on Friday at age 94, with Minister Roban saying “Bermuda’s thoughts are with the Bush family at this sad time.”

In a letter [PDF] to U.S. Consul General to Bermuda Constance Dierman, Acting Premier Walter Roban said, “On behalf of the Government and people of Bermuda, I extend condolences on the passing of former President, George H.W. Bush.

“As the 41st Commander in Chief, Bermuda acknowledges President Bush’s service and contributions to the United States and the global community.

“Many residents will recall when President Bush and British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher met in Bermuda for the Good Friday Summit in 1990, to discuss events associated with the collapse of the Soviet Union.

“Residents will also fondly remember during that time, that the two leaders engaged in our quintessential Bermudian tradition of kite flying on the Government House grounds. Bermuda was pleased to host this historical occasion.

“Over the next several days, President George H.W. Bush’s legacy will be remembered for many things. And among them we will remember his passionate belief of collaborating with domestic and global allies to address the challenges facing our world.

“Bermuda’s thoughts are with the Bush family at this sad time.”
