Mourning the loss of Bill Gates, Sr.

The University of Washington is mourning the loss of one of its most devoted Huskies – Bill Gates, Sr.

“The University of Washington weaves through the life of William H. Gates, Sr. like a thread of purple and gold. His philanthropic impact can be seen and felt across campus in so many ways, starting with the scholarships and programs that have benefitted countless students, who, like him, have had their lives changed while at the UW. During his time with the UW Foundation Board, few people touched

so many people’s lives through their leadership, philanthropy and just plain human decency as Bill Gates, Sr. The University of Washington – not to mention the world – is a better place thanks to him,” said UW Foundation Board Chair Korynne Wright.

Remembrances of Bill Gates, Sr. from his son and President Cauce can be found below.
