Microsoft Co-Founder Paul Allen Dead at Age 65

Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen died Monday in Seattle at age 65.

A statement released by his family said Allen died from complications of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, The New York Times reported.

Allen left Microsoft in the early 1980s after first being diagnosed with the cancer, which recently recurred after having been in remission for years.

Allen came up with the name Micro-Soft for the company that he co-founded with Bill Gates in 1975, The Times reported.

Along with buying the Portland Trail Blazers of the National Basketball Association and the Seattle Seahawks of the National Football League, Allen used the billions he earned from Microsoft to support science, technology, education, the environment and the arts.

For example, he funded the Allen Institute for Brain Science in 2003 and the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence in 2014, The Times reported.
