Demise: Microsoft Co-founder Bill gates' father breathes his last

Bill Gates Sr. who led the charity of the billionaire's son has died at the age of 94

William Gates Sr., the father of Microsoft co-founder, Bill Gates, is dead.

The family announced that Gates died peacefully on Monday at his beach home, from Alzheimer's disease.

While describing his late father as a philanthropist and a man with great work ethic, Gates credited him to have been instrumental in the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. "My dad's wisdom, generosity, empathy, and humility had a huge influence on people around the world".

Gates shared how encouraging and patient their parents were.

"Dad lived a long and meaningful life".

Bill Gates, however, didn't mention the real cause of the death.

Recognising his father's "quiet influence" on nearly everything Bill Gates did in life, he said in Microsoft's early years, he turned to his father at key moments to seek his legal counsel.

'Bill Sr. was a person who cared about the plight of many, and he had the resources and never-ending civic commitment to do something about it, ' Washington Gov. Jay Inslee said in a statement. All the family members were by his side when Gates's father took last breath.

Former Starbucks Chairman Howard Schultz has said that when he was struggling to raise the money to buy the six-store coffee chain in 1987, Gates Sr. stepped in to rescue him from a rival buyer.

'We worked together at the foundation not so much as father and son but as friends and colleagues.

William H. Gates was serious and judicious about learning!

Gates also said his dad has a huge influence on his philanthropy works.

In 1994, Gates Sr was 69 and planning to retire from his prestigious law practice in a few years when, one autumn evening, he and his son, Bill, and his daughter-in-law, Melinda, went to a movie. He was dignified but hated anything that seemed pretentious, " Gates Jr said.

A Covid-19 vaccine is due early next year and potentially three of the six leading vaccines that are undergoing trials will work, said Bill Gates, a billionaire philanthropist, saying India has a major role to play in scaling up production for these vaccines.

"He said some very touching things about how much he loved being a father to my sisters and me", he disclosed, adding that "he was everything I try to be".
