Microsoft co-founder, developer and philanthropist Paul G. Allen died Monday afternoon, his company, Vulcan Inc., announced.
Allen, also owner of the Seattle Seahawks and Portland Trailblazers, had battled non-Hodkin's lymphoma, which receded in 2009. He announced Oct. 1 that the disease returned.
Allen's sister Jody Allen issued the following statement via Vulcan Monday: "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."
Vulcan CEO Bill Hilf released this statement about the company's founder: "All of us who had the honor of working with Paul feel inexpressible loss today. He possessed a remarkable intellect and a passion to solve some of the world's most difficult problems, with the conviction that creative thinking and new approaches could make profound and lasting impact.
"Millions of people were touched by his generosity, his persistence in pursuit of a better world, and his drive to accomplish as much as he could with the time and resources at his disposal."
