Microsoft Co-Founder Paul Allen has passed away at the age of 65 due to cancer at his home in Seattle on Monday.

Allen’s death comes less than a month after he announced that he began treatment for non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, the type of cancer that he beat nine years earlier.

“Paul Allen’s contributions to our company, our industry and to our community are indispensable. As co-founder of Microsoft, in his own quiet and persistent way, he created magical products, experiences and institutions, and in doing so, he changed the world. I have learned so much from him - his inquisitiveness, curiosity, and push for high standards is something that will continue to inspired me and all of us at Microsoft. Our hearts are with Paul’s family and loved ones. Rest in peace,” said Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella in a  statement.
