SAN ANTONIO - As the nation says goodbye to its 41st president George H.W. Bush, it is fitting that the Secret Service shared a special memory of the former world leader, code name Timberwolf.

The U.S. Secret Service shared a photo of Timberwolf after he shaved his head in 2013 in solidarity with the rest of the agents on his detail who were supporting a fellow agent whose son was diagnosed with leukemia. 

Bush was no stranger to the disease; he and wife Barbara had a daughter, Robin, who died of leukemia in 1953 at age 3.
