HOUSTON | George H.W. Bush’s life embodiment of Texas spirit
HOUSTON — Although he was born and grew up on the East Coast, former President George H.W. Bush was the quintessential Texan.
He found early success in the state’s oil fields, helped change the landscape of Texas politics and loved Tex-Mex food.
And in his adopted hometown of Houston, Bush, who died on Friday, and his wife Barbara endeared themselves to the city and its residents through their kindness, accessibility and support of charitable causes and local sports teams.
