Businessman and former presidential candidate Ross Perot has died. He was 89 years old.
Family spokesperson James Fuller confirmed Perot died Tuesday of leukemia after a “great, wonderful, fast-moving life.” Perot was diagnosed with leukemia five months ago, in February, Fuller said.
“With deep sadness, I am letting you know that Mr. Perot passed away early Tuesday at his home, surrounded by his family,” Fuller said in a statement.
“Mr. Perot was a true patriot and a dedicated humanitarian. He will be missed greatly,” Fuller said.
He is survived by his wife Margot and their five children.
