In 1994, Gates Sr was 69 and planning to retire from his prestigious law practice in a few years when, one autumn evening, he and his son, Bill, and his daughter-in-law, Melinda, went to a movie.

Philanthropist and Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates has confirmed the passing of his father William Henry Gates Senior, at the age of 94.

"We have all had a long time to reflect on just how lucky we are to have had this awesome man in our lives for so many years".

The family statement does not give a cause of death, but says William Gates II had been in declining health. "We have been in lots of conversations with the companies, with the vaccines that look like they will be low-priced and very scalable, including AstraZeneca, Novavax - Sanofi - and Johnson and Johnson", said Gates.

He also served as a co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and played a critical role in its creation.

The younger Gates said his father had a "profoundly positive influence" on his life and it was an "incredible" experience being his son.

"People used to ask my dad if he was the real Bill Gates", the tech magnate wrote. "It's very likely that roll-out of COVID-19 vaccine will take place in fairly big volume (in India) sometime next year", Bill Gates said. "He was everything I try to be and I will miss him every day", Bill Gates tweeted.
