Gates Sr. has been instrumental in building charity known as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which was founded to enrich health care and reduce extreme poverty, globally, while nationally to expand educational activity and provide universal access to technology.

“The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation wouldn’t be what it is today without my father,” wrote Gates Jr., who ran the charity until her father stepped in to help.

“People were asking Dad if he was the real Bill Gates … The truth is, that was all I was trying to be.”

Gates Sr. he also provided legal advice to Microsoft, the technological giant of his children, when he was just beginning to take off.
