Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen has died at 65.
He had been suffering from non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and passed away on Monday, his investment firm said.
“Today we mourn our boss, mentor and friend whose 65 years were too short – and acknowledge the honor it has been to work alongside someone whose life transformed the world,” Allen’s investment firm Vulcan said in a statement.
Allen was also the owner of the Seattle Seahawks and Portland Trailblazers.
“My brother was a remarkable individual on every level,” Allen’s sister, Jody, said in a statement.
“While most knew Paul Allen as a technologist and philanthropist, for us he was a much loved brother and uncle, and an exceptional friend.”
