MICROSOFT’S PAUL ALLEN DIES AT 65
Microsoft Co-founder and noted philanthropist Paul Allen died at age 65 from complications of nonHodgkin’s lymphoma. He was a childhood friend of Bill Gates and the duo started Microsoft in 1975, pioneering the PC industry. Allen left Microsoft in 1983 to become an investor through his company Vulcan. He was also the owner of the Portland Trail Blazers and Seattle Seahawks. “Microsoft would never have happened without Paul,” said Gates, who shared some memories of Allen.
