On Wednesday, May 5, 2021, the bush family lost another family member Jonathan Bush at the age of 89. His heartbreaking death came a day before he would celebrate his 90th birthday.

He passed away at his home in Jupiter, Florida, and was the younger brother of the late President George H. W. Bush. Jonathan had made a name for himself besides being linked to the famous political family.

He was an investment manager, a former fundraiser, a dancer, an actor, and the last living sibling of his generation of the Bush family. The cause of his death was not disclosed at the time of his death.

One of his survivors is his son "Extra's” Billy Bush. The television personality took to his personal Instagram account to mourn his father's death and pay tribute to him with several photos.

The images included a photo taken during happier times where Jonathan appeared to be at a stadium with his wife. He was also photographed while making pancakes, on a boat ride, and when he was younger.

The last image showed Jonathan posing with Billy and someone else. In the post’s caption, the television personality described his late father as “the greatest man” he’d ever know while bidding him farewell.

Even though it was the day before his father’s birthday, Billy wished him a happy 90th birthday. He thanked George's brother for the great life he had and proudly called him the best father, noting:

“Everything worth knowing I got from you and mom.”

The television star shared how he’d watched his father take his last breath and revealed that he knew exactly where the older man was now. Knowing this made Billy happy and blessed.

In her 27 years of work, Ruth Bader Ginsburg championed gender equality and other liberal causes.

He concluded his post by vowing to keep the legend about his father alive. The George & Barbara Bush Foundation shared about Jonathan’s death on its Twitter account and described him as a nobleman.

One great person in the political sphere who passed away last year was the US Supreme Court’s, Ruth Bader Ginsburg. In her 27 years of work, she championed gender equality and other liberal causes.

She sadly passed away suddenly on September 18, 2020, at the age of 87. The gaping hole that the fierce women's rights advocate left behind in the court and people’s lives could never be filled.
