Paul Allen, Microsoft’s Co-Founder, Is Dead at 65

Marshawn lynch

"Our league is better for Paul Allen having been a part of it and the entire NFL sends its deepest condolences to Paul's family and to the Seahawks organization".

A few weeks ago, Allen said the cancer he was treated for in 2009 had returned.

Allen had his first run-in with cancer in 1982, when he was diagnosed with Hodgkins lymphoma and drastically cut back his work at the company while recovering.

The announcement was made by Vulcan Inc, the vehicle that managed Allen's billions, on behalf of his family and the Paul Allen Network. The Sounders have made the MLS Cup Play-offs in every season of their existence, and signed such soccer superstars as Clint Dempsey, Obafemi Martins, Nico Lodeiro, Raul Ruidiaz, and Jordan Morris. Allen purchased the Trail Blazers in 1988 and then the Seahawks in 1997, where he led them to three Super Bowl appearances and a championship in 2014.

Following news of Allen's death, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella described in a statement his contributions as "indispensable".

Taking a different tack, the magazine headlined its story to highlight the downturn in physical games sales. Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII launched for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 12.

The NBA team Allen owned, the Portland Trail Blazers, also tweeted about the news.

Vulcan Inc. said Allen possessed "a remarkable intellect and a passion to solve some of the world's most hard problems", and hailed his conviction in creative thinking to have an impact on society. Allen also started the Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame, in the same building as the EMP. Our thoughts are with Allen's family, friends, and co-workers during this time.

According to Forbes, Allen was the 44th richest person in the world with a net worth of $20.3 billion dollars. "At this time of loss and grief for us ― and so many others ― we are profoundly grateful for the care and concern he demonstrated every day". In a time when computers were rare, Allen lurked in the University of Washington computer labs, using the machines and aiding students and professors.

While he spent the past almost four decades as a high-profile investor, Allen is best known as the co-founder of Microsoft, developing the company alongside Gates, a high-school buddy.

Quiet, nerdy type who shunned the spotlight, ceding it to his sister, Jody Allen. Allen founded the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence, Stratolaunch Systems and the Allen Institute. We will continue to work on furthering Paul's mission and the projects he entrusted to us. In Seattle, for example, he championed research around the human brain and created the Allen Institute. He was 65 years old.
