The elder Bush also served as a Navy pilot in World War II, Texas congressman, Ambassador to the U.N., Republican Party chairman, CIA Director, and two-term vice president under former President Ronald Reagan.

He told CNN affiliate KPRC late Saturday he would never forget that all of Bush's children and grandchildren were able to express their love for the former President in the final moments of his life.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi say the Bush family will announce additional details about funeral arrangements beyond the Capitol ceremony.

Bush's casket will be transported to the Washington National Cathedral on Wednesday, where a memorial service for friends and family will be held at 11 a.m.

President Donald Trump designated Wednesday as a national day of mourning, the White House said.

Bush will then be taken by a motorcade procession to the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library in College Station, Texas, where he will be laid to rest. "President Bush was famously a very warm and gracious man who understood the power in being able to laugh at yourself", co-host Colin Jost said, introducing the segment.

After suffering a crushing defeat by Bill Clinton in the 1992 presidential election, Bush had to pack up and get out of the White House by January 20, 1993.

Following the service, Bush's casket will return to Joint Base Andrews at 1:15 p.m. A second memorial service will follow at St. Martin's Episcopal Church in Houston.

The train will unload at the railroad stop at Wellborn Road and George Bush Drive. He will be buried in the family plot alongside Barbara Bush, his wife of 73 years who died in April, and Robin Bush, the daughter they lost to leukemia in 1953 at age 3.
