Billionaire Harold Simmons died Saturday night at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas, says wife Annette. He was 82.
Annette Simmons tells our Alan Peppard that the East Texas native, who currently sits at No. 40 on Forbes list of the 400 wealthiest Americans, has been very sick for the last two weeks, and in Baylors intensive care unit for the last eight days. She did not reveal the specific cause of death.
Hes had a hard time, said Annette of her husband, namesake of the foundation that has dispensed hundreds of millions to local organizations.

Anything that takes money out of Soros-Rove’s pocket. He’s destroying the country with his RINO agenda.
So, am I supposed to dance on his grave? Please advise.
No need to dance on his grave. But Rove won’t be able to pick his pocket anymore.
I thought Richard Simmons had kicked the bucket!
I don’t think Richard Simmons would a Karl Rove donor, but maybe he’s in the closet.
I wonder if Harold was/is related to James P. Simmons who headed United Bank of AZ back in the 80’s?
I don’t know, but he did used to be a bank examiner for the FDIC, per the link.
That is why I questioned it and also because JPS was from Texas. He was a nice guy as I was up to his office many times.
I don’t find anything indicating they were related, but who knows.
Both were successful in accumulating wealth.
I, too, was unable to find information they were related.
Father: Leon Simmons (superintendent of schools)
Mother: Fairess Simmons (English teacher)
Brother: Glenn R. Simmons
Brother: Douglas Simmons
Wife: (div., 2 daughters)
Daughter: Scheryle S. Patigian
Daughter: Andrea Swanson
Wife: Annette C. Simmons
Daughter: Lisa Simmons Epstein
Daughter: Serena Simmons Connelly
Brother Glenn’s obit from earlier this year.
In the late 1960s, he helped his brother Harold manage a series of investments. The brothers became widely known for their financial prowess with Harolds 1969 purchase of Wards Cut-Rate Drug Co., which was sold to Jack Eckerd Corp. in 1972.
Glenn Simmons served as a director, vice chairman or chairman for the companies his brother invested in or owned, including Contran Corp., Valhi Inc., Keystone Consolidated Industries Inc., CompX Industries Inc., NL Industries Inc. and Kronos Worldwide Inc.
In addition to his daughter and brother, Simmons is survived by his wife, Dee Simmons of Dallas; another brother, Douglas Simmons of Dallas; nine grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren.
Rest in peace, Mr. Simmons.
That’s a uplifting, inspiring response when an individual passes.
Hopefully his heirs won’t be writing checks to Rove, the bloviating liberal.
He has billions of dollars, and I don’t.
But he’s dead, and I’m not.
This Richard Simmons was very upset and indignant that the White House has so far ignored his many offers to help educate people about exercising or Obamacare. “They have rejected me!, I guess I’m just not their set of sheets”.
Thanks for the info!!!
