On this national day of mourning for President George H. W. Bush, the nation’s home builders salute his legacy of a lifetime of service to America.
NAHB Chairman Randy Noel issued the following statement on the passing of President Bush:
“On behalf of all the members of NAHB, I wish to extend my deepest condolences to the Bush family. President Bush was an American war hero, a great statesman and an American patriot who embodied the ideals of our nation.
“He was also a true believer in housing. President Bush hosted the NAHB Board of Directors on the South Lawn of the White House to commemorate the association’s 50th anniversary. He said that ‘strong housing can help a strong economy’ and ‘the dream of homeownership keeps the American dream alive.’
