His son Jeb Bush found out about his father's passing in a devastating and impersonal way. According to his brother Neil, he missed the call from family members on Friday, reported the New York Post.

“Jeb, interestingly enough, was asleep and turns off all his equipment at night so we couldn’t reach him,” Neil Bush said of his brother Jeb, the former Florida governor, while speaking Tuesday at a private Washington, DC, reception.

He continued, “[Jeb] woke up at 4 in the morning and turned on the TV and found out that his dad had passed away,” Neil said.

“But every grandchild and every sibling was able to tell our father and our grandfather what an amazing man he was," he quickly added.
