Bill Gates Reveals His Father Has Passed Away At The Age Of 94

Prayers Up: Roommates, we are saddened to report on the loss of Bill Gates’ father, William Henry Gates II. Bill revealed that he passed away at the age of 94 on Monday.

“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,” Bill wrote on his official blog. “The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation would not be what it is today without my dad.

Bill said his father was an important part of starting the charitable organization, and says he has always aspired to walk in his footsteps.

“My father’s death is a tremendous loss for our family and the many people whose lives he touched. Dad lived a long and enormously meaningful life. I never stopped learning from his wisdom, kindness, and humility. Melinda and I owe him a special debt because his commitment to serving the community and the world helped inspire out own philanthropy.”
