Canadian politicians past and present offered their condolences on Saturday following the death of former USA president George H.W. Bush, with former prime minister Brian Mulroney calling it "an enormous loss".

President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump are mourning the passing of former President George H.W. Bush.

"The entire Bush family is deeply grateful for 41's life and love, for the compassion of those who have cared and prayed for Dad, and for the condolences of our friends and fellow citizens". A sixth child, daughter Robin, died of leukemia before her fourth birthday.

Family spokesman Jim McGrath says Bush died shortly after 10 p.m. Friday, about eight months after the death of his wife, Barbara Bush.

Mulroney said Bush asked him three years ago if he would speak at his funeral, and he said he'd be "honoured" to do it.

President Ronald Reagan famously called on Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev to "tear down this wall" - the Berlin Wall.

"With sound judgment, common sense, and unflappable leadership, President Bush guided our nation, and the world, to a peaceful and victorious conclusion of the Cold War", Trump said.

"Through his essential authenticity, disarming wit, and unwavering commitment to faith, family, and country, President Bush inspired generations of his fellow Americans to public service- to be, in his words, "a thousand points of lights" illuminating the greatness, hope, and opportunity of America to the world".

"As president, he set the stage for decades of prosperity that have followed". On one mission over the Pacific as a torpedo bomber pilot he was shot down by Japanese antiaircraft fire and was rescued from the water by a U.

As he accepted the Republican Party's nomination for president in 1988, Bush pleaded for a "kinder, gentler nation".
