DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Family and friends are set to remember H. Ross Perot, the colorful Texas billionaire who twice mounted outsider campaigns for president, at services in Dallas.
A graveside service Tuesday at 10:00 a.m. will be followed by a memorial service at 2:00 p.m. at Highland Park Methodist Church.
Both events are private, but the church service can be viewed via livestream or at a nearby church.
Perot founded computer services giant Electronic Data Systems Corp. in 1962 and became one of the nation’s richest men.
At the graveside service, the U.S. Air Force will conduct an F-16 flyover in the missing man formation. Perot was known for his support of veterans and the military.
Instead of flowers, the family said those who want to honor Perot should make contributions to any of the charities listed on a website the family created.
