    Posted because billionaires are loved here....


    David Rockefeller, the billionaire businessman and philanthropist who was the last in his generation of one of the country's most famously philanthropic families, died Monday. He was 101.


    Rockefeller died in his sleep at his home in Pocantico Hills, New York, according to his spokesman, Fraser P. Seitel.

    He was the grandson of Standard Oil co-founder John D. Rockefeller and the youngest of six children born to John D. Rockefeller Jr. With the passing of his siblings, he became the guardian of his family's fortune and head of a sprawling network of family interests, both business and philanthropic, that ranged from environmental conservation to the arts.
    To mark his 100th birthday in 2015, Rockefeller gave 1,000 acres of land next to a national park to the state of Maine.
    As one of the Rockefeller grandchildren, David belonged to the last generation in which the inherited family billions were concentrated in a few hands. The next generation, known as "the cousins," has more people.

    Robin,

    I was just about to write him a note asking him how I can be more involved with giving to charity outside of building cat buildings

    He never had to work one day in his life, thanks to what his grandfather did over 100 years ago.

    His job in this world was to give away a family fortune.

    Easy to get it when you murder, extort and steal it from anyone you can while being the de facto President of a country

    I'm really hoping to see things go horribly wrong for Putin. He deserves it.

    I worked with someone many years ago who was related to the Rockefellers. He had the same last name also.

    We worked at a gas station. His wife worked at Two Guys. :dontknow:
