I’ve only seen him as a public figure, of course, but I was, and will remain, a fan. I’ve admired him greatly, not just for the company he built, but for how he conducted his business—well, for the things he said and did publicly, at any rate.
A straightforward, honest man who played extremely hard when running his company, but who made sure he did the right thing all the same.
Rest in Peace, Sir. Your legacy will live on, and will hopefully inspire the next generation of visionaries.
