KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Wealthy Missouri businessman and political donor Stan Herzog has died.

An obituary posted with Meierhoffer Funeral Home and Crematory says Herzog died Friday. No cause of death was listed.

The Kansas City Star reports that 70-year-old Herzog was president of Herzog Enterprise and chairman and CEO of Herzog Contracting Corp.
