Allen, who also owned the NBA's Portland Trail Blazers, served as the owner of the Seahawks since 1997 and was the co-founder of Microsoft.

The co-founder of Microsoft, and an investor who bet often far in advance on new technology, medical research, and urban initiatives was 65.

In 1996, Allen added the Seattle Seahawks to his portfolio for $200 million. Our hearts are with Paul's family and loved ones.

Allen's sister, Jody Allen, wrote in a statement: "My brother was a remarkable individual on every level. 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".

"Paul thoughtfully addressed how the many institutions he founded and supported would continue after he was no longer able to lead them".

In recent years, Allen's philanthropic efforts were widely recognized in his hometown and across the world.

"Today we mourn our boss, mentor and friend whose 65 years were too short - and acknowledge the honor it has been to work alongside someone whose life transformed the world". Microsoft's big break came in 1980, when IBM Corp. chose to move into personal computers. Eventually the product, refined by Microsoft - and renamed DOS, for Disk Operating System - became the core of IBM PCs and their clones, catapulting Microsoft into its dominant position in the PC industry. He was first diagnosed when he was CEO of Microsoft. "Seattle is dotted with the results of his philanthropy and investments, from the unbelievable work of the Allen Institute for Brain Science to the preservation of the world-class Cinerama movie theater". Officially, Allen worked at Microsoft up until 2000 but did stick around as a senior strategy advisor.

Allen was a huge music fan, especially of Jimi Hendrix, and founded The Experience Music Project Museum in Seattle.

Through his company, Vulcan Sports & Entertainment, Allen was also part of the ownership group for the Seattle Sounders of the MLS.

Many from the Blazers, Seahawks, and elsewhere around the National Basketball Association and NFL offered their thoughts on Allen and sent their condolences to his family after learning of the news, including former Microsoft CEO and current Clippers owner Steve Ballmer.
