In a statement they expressed their "deepest and most sincere condolences to those involved".
They said of the 77-year-old: "Being a grandfather himself, he is devastated to the core by what has happened. We feel deeply for everyone affected by this terrible tragedy.
"He is a very quiet man, and a caring and devoted person. He has strong ties with the local community and has spent most of his life helping and thinking of others. This is just beyond anyone’s imagination.
"We would only ask that the privacy of the families is respected at this tragic time and the police are given space to complete their investigation."
Two people killed in a bus crash in Coventry at the weekend have been named by their families.
Rowan Fitzgerald, 7, of Leamington Spa and Dora Hancox, in her 70s, of Nuneaton, both died when a double decker bus collided with a supermarket.
Rowan’s cousin, an eight-year-old girl, was also injured and she remains in a stable condition in hospital.
The children were travelling with their grandparents on the bus when the accident happened.
Five other people were injured in the crash.
Inspector Paul Bennett, from West Midlands Police, said:
The families of Rowan and Dora have suffered a devastating loss. Like people the length and breadth of Britain, we extend our deepest sympathies to them during this time.
As they struggle to come to terms with their loss, they have chosen at this time not to release any images of their loved ones or to provide any words of tribute.
They have also asked for the media to respect their privacy as they grieve.
The bus driver, a 77-year-old man, has not been arrested but "continues to help investigators", police say.
Stagecoach has issued a statement saying its "hearts go out" to the families of the victim's of Saturday's bus crash in Coventry.
One of its double decker buses slammed into the side of a Sainsbury's supermarket, killing two people.
The company also said the bus driver, a 77-year-old man, had "many years' experience" and had "passed a mandatory annual medical".
In a statement, the company said:
Our hearts go out to the families of those who have lost their loved ones. Our thoughts also remain with all those affected by this tragic incident.
No driver we employ is allowed behind the wheel of our buses without us being satisfied that they are fully qualified, safe and meet all necessary legal requirements. In this case, our driver has many years' experience and has also passed a mandatory annual medical.
Both our driver and our company are co-operating fully in helping police determine the full circumstances involved.
Police have not yet completed their investigation and it is inappropriate to speculate in advance of their inquiries being concluded.
