Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen Dies By Cancer: In fact every creature has to taste death, today it is tested by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, tomorrow may be anyone from us. Microsoft Co-Founder Paul Allen has died from complications of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, Vulcan Inc. said Monday on behalf of his family.

Who Was Paul Allen?
Born in 1953 in Seattle, Washington, Paul Allen met fellow Lakeside School student and computer enthusiast Bill Gates when Allen was 14 and Gates was 12. Less than a decade later, in 1975, college drop-outs Allen and Gates founded Microsoft. Allen resigned after being diagnosed with Hodgkin's disease in 1983, and continued to pursue other business, research, and philanthropic opportunities. According to Forbes, as of 2016, the self-made Microsoft entrepreneur was one of the wealthiest people in America with an estimated net worth of $19 billion.

Paul Gardner Allen was an American business magnate, investor and philanthropist. He co-founded Microsoft alongside Bill Gates in 1975. In August 2018, he was estimated to be the 46th-richest person in the world, with an estimated net worth of $20.2 billion.

Allen passed away Monday afternoon in Seattle at 65 years old, Vulcan said. His sister, Jody, said he 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," she said in a statement. "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."

Earlier this month, Allen revealed that he had started treatment for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, the same type of cancer he overcame nine years earlier. The longtime CEO left Microsoft when he was first diagnosed with the disease.

In 1983, Allen, known as the "idea man" counterpart to Gates' "man of action," resigned from Microsoft after being diagnosed with Hodgkin's disease. After undergoing several months of radiation treatment, his health was restored, and he has been in remission ever since. 

In the fall of 2009, Allen received another blow to his health: he had developed non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and had to undergo more radiation treatments. Luckily, Allen beat this cancer diagnosis as well.

In October 2018, Allen revealed that he started treatments for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. He passed away October 15, 2018, from complications of the disease.

Current Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said Allen made "indispensible" contributions to Microsoft and the technology industry. Nadella also said he learned a lot from Allen and will continue to be inspired by him.

"As co-founder of Microsoft, in his own quiet and persistent way, he created magical products, experiences and institutions, and in doing so, he changed the world," Nadella said in a statement.

Former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer called Alen a "truly wonderful, bright and inspiring person."

Steven Sinofsky, former president of Microsoft's Windows division, said Allen "did so much to shape lives with computing and his later work in science, community, and research." wish from God that God give peace to the soul of Mr.Allen and give him a place in Paradise.
