Trammell Crow dead at age 94.

Trammell Crow, the Dallas-based commercial real estate developer and the founder of the Trammell Crow Company died January 14 at the family farm in East Texas. He was 94.

Beginning with a single warehouse in Dallas in 1948, Crow went on to build one of the largest and most successful commercial real estate companies in the United States.

A devoted husband, father and grandfather, a friend and confidant of U.S. presidents from Richard Nixon to George Bush, and a renowned world traveler. He and his wife, Margaret, created an Asian art museum in the Dallas Arts District, The Trammell and Margaret Crow Collection of Asian Art,.

From his distinguished business career to his loving family to his untiring dedication to civic and charitable causes, Mr. Crow's remarkable life stands as a testament to hard work, visionary leadership and the unlimited potential of the American entrepreneurial spirit.

"The world will remember Mr. Crow as a legendary real estate developer and businessman because of his unparalleled vision and passion for success. But to those who were fortunate to know him personally, we will remember his humor and upbeat personality along with his uncompromising honesty, integrity and character. Whatever we were yesterday as individuals, we are slightly less today because of the passing of this great man," said Jim Carreker, a former CEO of Trammell Crow Company.

Mr. Crow is survived by his wife of 66 years, their six children, Robert Crow, Howard Crow, Harlan Crow, Trammell S. Crow, Lucy Billingsley, Stuart Crow, 16 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
