Billionaire Microsoft CEO and founder, Bill Gates has reported that his father, William Gates Sr, is dead. He died at the age of 94.
Bill Gates disclosed that his father, William Gates died peacefully at home, surrounded by his family.
According to Bill, they all feel grief but at the same time are grateful.
He also said William Gates death was expected because he was already well-aged and his health declining.
As stated by Bill Gates, his dad made him give a $100 million contribution to research for Alzheimer’s disease, after he revealed his father suffered from it in 2018.
He also revealed his dad’s support inspired him to leave Harvard University to co-found a company with Paul Allen in 1975.
Bill wrote an heartfelt tribute to his late father on his personal blog late Tuesday night, saying: “I will miss my dad every day.”
“We will miss him more than we can express right now. We are feeling grief but also gratitude.”
“My dad’s passing was not unexpected he was 94 years old and his health had been declining, so we have all had a long time to reflect on just how lucky we are to have had this amazing man in our lives for so many years.
“My dad’s wisdom, generosity, empathy, and humility had a huge influence on people around the world.”
“I knew their love and support were unconditional, even when we clashed in my teenage years. I am sure that’s one of the reasons why I felt comfortable taking some big risks when I was young, like leaving college to start Microsoft with Paul Allen,” the Microsoft founder added.
“We worked together at the foundation not so much as father and son but as friends and colleagues,” he said.
“When we started doing so in a big way at the foundation, we had no idea how much fun we would have. We only grew closer during more than two decades of working together.”
Bill Gates further said:
“When I am at my best, I know it is because of what I learned from my dad about respecting women, honoring individuality, and guiding children’s choices with love and respect,”
“The experience of being the son of Bill Gates was incredible. People used to ask my dad if he was the real Bill Gates. The truth is, he was everything I try to be.”
May His Soul Rest in Perfect Peace. Amen

She further revealed that she had lost opportunities simply because she was not prepared or didn’t make proper use of them.
She added that she has a lot of opportunities but her hard work, determination, and business style took her to where she is.
She advised that one should just depend on connections but also try to be prepared, hone their skills, and deliver a standard service.
Cuppy said that no matter how many doors open for you, only your skill and delivery can keep you in those doors.
Taking her Instagram page, she wrote: ”Some people say my success is solely due to the doors my dad opened for me… I beg to differ’
