It is with the deepest sadness and shock that we have to report that Bill gates dad, William Gates went to be with the Lord.
We found out about the recent death of Bill Gates Sr, William Gates Today. This was made known to us through the tributes posted on social media platforms by friends and family.
If you don’t mind receive our most profound sympathy during this period.
According to a source, Bill Gates announced that his father, William Gates, Sr., has died. Gates revealed the news on his blog, Gates Notes, on September 15, 2020.
Cause of death
Gates said that his father died “peacefully” and was “surrounded by family.”
He didn’t reveal his father’s cause of death but in 2018 Gates revealed that Gates, Sr. had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease on the Today show.
In his tribute, Gates also shared that his father was the inspiration for his charity organization, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation would not be what it is today without my dad. More than anyone else, he shaped the values of the foundation. He was collaborative, judicious, and serious about learning. He was dignified but hated anything that seemed pretentious. (Dad’s given name was William H. Gates II, but he never used the “II”—he thought it sounded stuffy.) He was great at stepping back and seeing the big picture. He was quick to tear up when he saw people suffering in the world. And he would not let any of us forget the people behind the strategies we were discussing.
Praise the life of the deceased, leave a benevolent word for him. Companions, Family and Friends and family has spilled out their lament and sympathy to respect the passing ceaselessly of the expired.
