Bill Gates, who recently passed away at age 94, said Wednesday he would not leave his sprawling estate in California for another decade, but that he would look into renting a place elsewhere.
In an interview with The Associated Press, Gates said he had long planned to retire from his role as Microsoft’s chairman and chief executive.
“I’m going to retire in 2046.
And I have an incredible family,” he said, adding that he did not intend to stay for more than 20 years.”
It’s an incredible privilege to live and work in the world’s most beautiful city,” Gates said.
“I just don’t see how I’m going back.”
Gates was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2006 and has been on disability since then.
He said he did all he could to help his wife and daughters, but was not able to fulfill his dreams.
He said he plans to have a daughter, and that he and his wife were planning to have another child.
“We’re very proud of her,” Gates added.
“But she’s very young.”
