LAS VEGAS — Sheldon Adelson – the billionaire founder  and CEO of Las Vegas Sands and one of President Donald Trump’s largest donors – has died at the age of 87 from complications related to treatment for non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, the casino company announced Tuesday.

At one point the third richest man in the world, Adelson brought singing gondoliers to the Las Vegas Strip and went all-in betting Asia would be a bigger jackpot than Sin City. In his later years, he became widely known for his political activism, including his donations to Trump and other Republicans as well as his support for Israel.

In March 2019, the 87-year-old businessman announced he was getting treatment for non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. He recently resumed those treatments.

Las Vegas Sands announced last week that Adelson had taken a leave of absence as his cancer worsened.
