Indiana real estate developer and philanthropist Gene Glick died today. He was 92 years old.

Gene Glick and with his late wife Marilyn founded the Glick Fund, which is part of Central Indiana Community Foundation.

They donated to a variety of organizations, including the Indiana University School of Medicine and the Indianapolis Cultural Trail, and established the Indiana Authors Award.

“A devoted patriot, successful businessman, and generous philanthropist, Gene B. Glick will be remembered always in Indiana for his heart of gold and commitment to leaving this world better than he found it,” Governor Mike Pence said in a statement.

Gene and Marilyn Glick started a real estate company called Indianapolis Homes in 1947. It later evolved into the Gene B. Glick Company, a major apartment developer.

Glick earned his Bachelor of Science at Indiana University’s business school. He also served in World War II shortly after the Normandy Invasion.

Marilyn Glick died in March of last year. She was 90 years old.
