WATCH: George W. Bush pays tribute to his father

Download video Channel: PBS NewsHour

The 41st U.S. president's son, former President George W. Bush, delivered a eulogy for his father Wednesday, describing a "generous and giving soul" who also appreciated a good joke. Lightening the mood of the ceremony, Bush used humor to lightly poke fun at his father.

"Dad taught me another special lesson: He showed me what it means to be a president who serves with integrity, leads with courage and acts with love in his heart for the citizens of this country."

President Donald Trump and three other former presidents also attended the final Washington farewell to Bush.
