#1 He preferred to donate his money to outstanding institutions rather than "use it on buying a bigger house or a $150 million painting," he said.

#3 Though he was a liberal on social issues like abortion and same-sex marriage, Mr. Koch used his fortune to support conservative causes that favor lowering taxes, free trade and fewer regulations. He was the Libertarian Party’s 1980 vice-presidential candidate.

That kinda makes him a Libertarian, not a Conservative, doesn't it? Didn't agree with him on some things, but he walked the walk and talked the talk. He wasn't an Agent of Destruction™ like Soros or Steyer...

#4 He used his wealth for good. He made our culture better and he generously funded medical research. He and his brother earned their money fairly, in traditional industries, without benefit of market manipulation, investment bubbles or sweetheart legislation and political favoritism.

Exact opposite of Soros and other left-oligarchs.

RIP
