Legendary comedian and showman Bob Hope (search), who traveled the globe performing for millions of American troops stationed overseas through four wars, has died. He was 100.
His longtime publicist said Hope died Sunday night of pneumonia, while surrounded by his family at home in Toluca Lake, Calif.
He is survived by his wife, Delores Reade Hope, his four children, Linda, Anthony, Honora and William Kelly Francis, and four grandchildren.
President Bush joined the nation in mourning the death of the comedian. "Today the nation lost a great citizen," the president said. Bob Hope made us laugh and he lifted our spirits,” Bush said Monday as he boarded Air Force One en route to Pittsburgh.
