MEETING former US President George HW Bush and his wife Barbara was a privilege Mildura resident Ken Wright will never forget.

A former Deputy President of the Victorian Legislative Council in the 1980s, Mr Wright was lucky enough to spend time with the presidential couple at Government House in Melbourne in 1992.

The former Republican President of the United States died at his Houston home on Friday night, only seven months after his wife Barbara died.
