A high school dropout who became a billionaire roofing company executive and one of the nation’s richest people died Friday after falling through his garage roof.
Ken Hendricks, who was 66, was the 91st richest man in the U.S. with a net worth of $3.5 billion in September, according to Forbes magazine.
