A Man named Harold; and a president named Barack... (
Richard Nixon attended the funeral of a Major General Casey killed in Vietnam and George W. Bush attended the funeral of Lieutenant General Timothy Maude, who was killed in the 9/11 attacks.
As per Nixon's daries he didn't attend. While Bush did attend Maude.
This is what I used to find the entries

While Major General Greene was buried, Barack Obama was golfing. The Vice President wasn't there either. Neither was the Secretary of Defense. Flags were not even lowered half-mast.
As per stars and stripes the Secretary of Defense did attend.https://www.stripes.com/maj-gen-harold-greene-receives-full-burial-honors-at-arlington-1.298353
Harold was Harold Greene, Major General, United States Army. On Aug. 5, 2014, Major General Greene was killed by a Taliban terrorist.
According to army times there was no association to the talibanhttps://www.armytimes.com/news/pentagon-congress/2014/12/04/report-general-s-killer-fired-30-rounds/
When Margaret Thatcher, one of America's staunchest allies and Ronald Reagan's partner in bringing down Soviet communism died, Obama sent only a small low-level delegation to her funeral. The snub was not missed by the British.
No arguement here he did send the two who worked with her most. George Shultz and Jim Baker.

When Chris Kyle, the most lethal American sniper in history was murdered, there was no expression of sympathy from the White House.
Again no arguement as flag at half mast, it wasn't approved by Governor Perry even through people wanted it to happen.https://www.jacksonville.com/article/20130428/NEWS/801253755
But when Whitney Houston died from a drug overdose, the Obama/Biden administration ordered all flags be flown at half-mast.
Nope Obama didn't order the flag half mast , but it was done at state level.https://www.jacksonville.com/article/20130428/NEWS/801253755https://www.politifact.com/article/2015/jul/22/half-truths-white-house-half-staff-flag-controvers/
