Bill Gates loses Dad

Melinda Gates, wife of Bill Gates on Tuesday,post on her Facebook page of the passing away of her father in law.

She said:” I am heartbroken about the passing of Bill Gates Sr. It is difficult to overstate what he meant to me, to our family, and to our foundation. Bill Sr. liked to say, in characteristic modesty, that the secret to his success was simply “showing up.” And he was world-class at showing up: as a father and grandfather, as the heart of our foundation who rarely missed a day of work in 20 years (even though he was retired the whole time), and as a pillar of the Seattle community for almost three-quarters of a century. He always brought with his extraordinary wisdom, endless integrity, and a magical sense of wonder about the world around him. We will miss him, but we will forever catch glimpses of him in the people whose lives are changed by the work our foundation supports—and in the loving moments our family shares.
