Paul Allen, mostly known as the co-founder of Microsoft has passed away at the age of 65 from complications of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Allen was also the owner of the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks and NBA’s Portland Trail Blazers.
His family offered up a statement today through his sister Jody Allen.
“My brother was a remarkable individual on every level. While most knew Paul Allen as a technologist and philanthropist, for us he was a much loved brother and uncle, and an exceptional friend. Paul’s family and friends were blessed to experience his wit, warmth, his generosity and deep concern. For all the demands on his schedule, there was always time for family and friends. 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.”
