At 93 years and 166 days old, the former president stepped into the spot that was previously held by former President Gerald Ford, The Daily Caller reported. Ford died in 2006 at 93 years old.

Bush served as vice president under former President Ronald Reagan, who held the third spot for longest living president.

Former President Jimmy Carter, at 93,  is now the next oldest living president, though he is 111 days younger than Bush.

Bush served as the 41st President of the United States from 1989 to 1993, losing his re-election bid to former President Bill Clinton. When his son, George W. Bush was elected in 1999, the two became the second father and son duo to serve as U.S. presidents, after former Presidents John Adams and his son, John Quincy Adams.
