(2 Dec 2018) 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 through their kindness, accessibility and support of charitable causes and local sport teams.
Roberto Molina, whose family owns Molina’s Cantina, one of Bush’s favorite Tex-Mex restaurants in Houston, says he remembers Bush’s kindness to his staff whenever he would stop by to eat.
During Sunday mass at his longtime church, St. Martin’s Episcopal, Bush’s pastor, the Rev. Russell J. Levenson Jr., acknowledged the former president’s death but told parishioners that Bush would have wanted the attention not focused on him but on the church service.
