Seahawks owner Paul Allen has died at the age of 65 on Monday due to complications of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Here the statement from Allen’s family:

“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.” 

Allen co-founded Microsoft along with Bill Gates. He also owned the Portland Trail Blazers and partially owned the Seattle Sounders.
Allen acquired the Seahawks in 1996 from former owner Ken Behring, who had threatened to move the franchise to Southern California. During his year’s the Seahawks’ owner, the team appeared in three Super Bowls winning one and earned three NFC Championships.
