David Koch and his brother, Charles, co-owned Koch Industries, a Nebraska-based energy and chemical company. He stepped down from running the Koch organization last year due to declining health.  

The Koch brothers helped reshaped American politics. They built a massive conservative network of donors for organizations that work to mobilize voters and sway elected officials in support of libertarian-leaning economic policies.

His brother, Charles G. Koch confirmed the death in a statement in which he disclosed that David Koch had been treated for prostate cancer in the past.

“Twenty-seven years ago, David was diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer and given a grim prognosis of a few years to live. David liked to say that a combination of brilliant doctors, state of the art medications and his own stubbornness kept the cancer at bay,” the statement said.
