UPDATE: Former President George H.W. Bush was remembered by family and friends as a humble leader with the “courage of a warrior” at a second funeral at the St. Martin’s Episcopal Church in Houston on Thursday.
James Baker, a close friend who served as Bush’s secretary of state and chief of staff, delivered the first eulogy, sprinkling his tribute with humorous personal stories and praise for the former president as a man of strong faith and quiet humility.
“Yes, he had the courage of a warrior. But when the time came for prudence, he always maintained the greater courage of a peacemaker,” Baker said, referring Bush’s role in maintaining diplomacy after the Berlin Wall fell during his administration.
