Editors Note: As 2019 turns into 2020, we’re taking the opportunity to look back at some of our best and biggest stories of the year. The loss of two business legends – H. Ross Perot and T. Boone Pickens – was one of those stories.
In a matter of just a few months, Dallas has lost two of its most colorful business legends: H. Ross Perot at age 89 in July, T. Boone Pickens at 91 in September.
Remember “Ross for Boss?”
D Magazine has described the two-time third-party presidential candidate as “a man whose wealth, talent, and drive arguably left a larger mark on North Texas than any other.”
Pickens, the self-made oil tycoon, could draw high praise, too.
