Paul Allen, who co-founded Microsoft with Bill Gates, passed away last night aged 65 from complications of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
Gates said: “I am heartbroken by the passing of one of my oldest and dearest friends… Personal computing would not have existed without him.”
In a statement confirming his death on Monday afternoon, his sister Jody described the businessman as a “remarkable individual on every level”.
“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,” the statement said.
“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.”
