He died on Saturday. Six years ago, I profiled him for National Review. Before he made his mark as a philanthropist, he was a doctor:

Most of his patients were victims of trauma, which is the leading cause of injury and death among children. “I learned that trauma is no accident,” he says. “The power of culture plays a big part in what happens.” He observed that the role of religion was especially strong. “If people see themselves as loved by God, they are more likely to do things such as buckle their seatbelts.”
