Governor Abbott Statement On Passing Of H. Ross Perot

July 9, 2019 | Austin, Texas | Press Release

AUSTIN – Governor Greg Abbott today released the following statement on the death of legendary Texan, H. Ross Perot.

“Ross Perot exemplified what it means to be a Texan and an American. Born into extreme poverty, he rose up to become one our nation’s most successful entrepreneurs and an exemplar of the American dream. More importantly, however, Ross Perot was a devoted husband, family man, and servant of God. His charitable work and his support of the United States Military and its veterans will forever be remembered. I ask that all Texans join Cecilia and me in remembering one of the Lone Star State’s greatest sons and keep him and his family in their prayers.”
