DALLAS (KRLD) - Family and friends remembered H. Ross Perot, the larger than life Texas billionaire at private services this afternoon in Dallas.

The church estimates that around 1,300 who were closest to the Perot family gathered at Highland Park Methodist Church.

Perot founded computer services giant Electronic Data Systems Corp. in 1962 and became one of the nation’s richest men. He ran for president in 1992 and 1996.

A graveside service complete with a U.S. Air Force F-16 flyover in the missing man formation was held earlier Tuesday morning.

Instead of flowers, the family said those who want to honor Perot should make contributions to any of the charities listed on a website the family created.
