Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates paid a heartfelt tribute to his father William Henry Gates II, who died on Monday in the United States. He was 94.
“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 our own philanthropy,” Gates wrote in the blog post.
“As I’ve said many times before, my dad was the real Bill Gates. He was all the things I strive to be,” he further said.
Gates saw his middle child grow from a headstrong boy to one of the most admired business leaders of his generation who became the world’s second richest person
