Tesei Issues Statement on Passing of George HW Bush

Statement from Greenwich First Selectman Peter Tesei

The Town of Greenwich, like the nation and the world, mourns the loss of one of its own – a member of the “Greatest Generation.”

President George H.W. Bush was a true hometown boy, that regardless of his position in the global sphere of political power, he remained forever tied to his family roots here in Greenwich.

President Bush was the epitome of selfless service to his country. His modesty, his genuine and dignified character served him well as the consummate patriot, statesman and president. His steadfast demeanor established the high standard of conduct for those who hold our Nation’s highest office.

We extend our heartfelt condolences to the Bush family with the gratitude that they so willingly shared their “Poppy”with our nation to help make the United States the global power it is.

May he now rest in peace with his beloved Barbara who passed away in April.
