Billionaire David Koch, who along with his older brother was a formidable conservative activist and donor for decades, died Friday morning at age 79.

“It is with a heavy heart that I announce the passing of my brother David,” Charles Koch said in a statement Friday. “Anyone who worked with David surely experienced his giant personality and passion for life.”

“While this is a very sad day for us all, I want you to know that David was proud of the extraordinary work you all have done to make Koch Industries the successful company that it is today. He will be greatly missed, but never forgotten,” Charles Koch added.

David Koch had stepped down from Koch Industries just over a year ago for health reasons.
