American business executive and noted family, the first son of John Paul Getty with his first wife, Jeanette Demont.
By age 36, he had achieved the greatest success in the oil empire, President of Tidewater and also Director of the Getty Museum. He was an intelligent but plodding businessman, pompous and boring.
Getty married in 1951 for 16 years; three daughters. He made a second marriage in May 1971.
Deeply insecure from the criticism of his dominant father and increasingly troubled, he secretly stabbed his hand with a letter opener. On 6 June 1973, he committed suicide in Los Angeles by overdosing on pills, dying from a cerebral hemorrhage at age 48. His estate was valued at $3 million. His residence, Getty House, was donated to the city, and became the official residence of the serving Mayor of Los Angeles.
