Billionaire, former presidential candidate, and Tucker’s Town homeowner Ross Perot has died at the age of 89, according to his family.

A BBC story said, “Described as idiosyncratic and feisty, he pioneered the computer data industry by founding his own company in 1962.

“But he was best known for running in the 1992 campaign, advocating balanced budgets and calling for an end to the outsourcing of jobs abroad. Democrat Bill Clinton won the three-way race, in which Mr Perot took almost 19% of the vote.”

“Mr Perot ran for president again in 1996, after forming the Reform Party. He was diagnosed with leukaemia earlier this year.

“Ross Perot, the ground-breaking businessman and loving husband, brother, father and grandfather, passed away early Tuesday at his home in Dallas, surrounded by his devoted family,” the Perot family said in a statement.”

A CNBC story said, “Billionaire philanthropist and independent presidential candidate Ross Perot is dead at 89, CNBC has confirmed.

“Perot, who ran for president twice in 1992 and 1996, died after a five-month battle with leukemia, said James Fuller, a representative for the Perot family.

“In business and in life, Ross was a man of integrity and action. A true American patriot and a man of rare vision, principle and deep compassion, he touched the lives of countless people through his unwavering support of the military and veterans and through his charitable endeavors,” Fuller said in a statement.

“Perot is survived by his wife, Margot, his five children and 16 grandchildren.”
