Paul Allen, the cofounder of Microsoft and billionaire philanthropist, died Monday afternoon after battling non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

The 65-year-old Seattle native is best-known for having launched Microsoft with Bill Gates, but he also operated the venture-capital firm Vulcan Ventures, and staked his claim on sports franchises as the owner of the Seattle Seahawks and Portland Trail Blazers.

Allen previously overcame a bout of Hodgkin’s lymphoma in the 1980s, but he was later diagnosed with cancer in 2009, which returned after a period of remission.

As a titan in the tech industry and the world of sports, Allen influenced his colleagues to inspire millions of others through their work.

Here’s how Allen’s friends and associates are responding to his death.

“I am heartbroken by the passing of one of my oldest and dearest friends,” Gates said in a statement to The Wall Street Journal on Monday. “Paul was a true partner and dear friend.”

Gates and and Allen were high-school friends; they founded Microsoft in 1975.

“Personal computing would not have existed without him,” Gates said.

“Our industry has lost a pioneer and our world has lost a force for good,” Cook said in a tweet on Monday. “We send our deepest condolences to Paul’s friends, the Allen family and everyone at Microsoft.

“We lost a great technology pioneer today – thank you Paul Allen for your immense contributions to the world through your work and your philanthropy,” Pichai said Monday. “Thoughts are with his family and the entire Microsoft community.”
