Perot buried in Dallas
Billionaire part-time Bermuda resident Ross Perot, who died last week, was buried yesterday in his home town in Texas.
A service to mark the life of Mr Perot was held at Highland Park Methodist Church after his burial. Ross Perot Jr said yesterday that the Perot family had been “deeply moved by the outpouring of love and support” since his father’s death last Tuesday at his home in Dallas.
He added: “The expressions of sympathy have been a wellspring of hope for our family, and we want to express our appreciation to so many.
“It’s been an extraordinary gift to hear of the experiences and special memories of those who knew Ross Perot.”
Mr Perot also thanked those who had taken part in the ceremony to remember his father.
He said: “Whether you worked alongside Ross or simply found inspiration in his example, rest assured that he loved you.”
Mr Perot said that his father “did his duty to God, his country, his family, his friends”.
