June 12, 2018Jun 12, 2018

June 12 is a special day for Former President George H. W. Bush as he celebrates his birthday! The nation’s 41st president turned 94 on Tuesday, June 12.

Not only is this day special because it is his birthday, it is also special because it is unprecedented! No other former president in the United States has reached their 94th birthday, making him the longest living president!

According to the New York Post, Bush is having a “low-key” day and spending his 94th birthday at his home in Kennebunkport. He was released only eight days ago from the hospital after receiving treatment for low blood pressure.

Sadly, Bush has to celebrate his birthday without former First Lady Barbara Bush, his wife of 73 years. Barbara Bush passed away in April. She would've celebrated her 93rd birthday last Friday.

Below are some of the good wishes and throwback photos that people have been posting in honor of George H. W. Bush’s birthday:
