Robert W. Wilson, a retired...

...hedge-fund founder who became a major philanthropist, died at age 87. According to his obit in the Times:

Mr. Wilson was found dead Monday in an inner courtyard of the San Remo building on Central Park West, between 74th and 75th Streets, where he lived in a 16th-floor apartment. The police said he left a note indicating that he had leapt to his death.

Although tragic, Mr. Wilson's suicide was a considerate one. His note included “a list of appointments that would have to be canceled.”
