Born in Seattle, Allen attended Washington State University for two years before dropping out to co-found Microsoft in 1975 with Bill Gates, a friend of his from high school.
The company moved to Bellevue, Washington in 1979. He never displayed the commercial instinct of Gates, who generally is credited with powering Microsoft's rise to ubiquity in the 1990s. Allen had battled non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in 2009.
Allen had left Microsoft by 1983 for health reasons but held on to shares which made up the bulk of his fortune, estimated at some $20 billion. With the success of the PC and PC compatibles, Microsoft became hugely successful.
Allen's Wikipedia page goes on and on with his accomplishments, and they really are too numerous to mention.
"That did choke me up a little bit, just thinking I wish he would have been able to come to [that] game", Allen said. But by that point the Seahawks' status as one of the most successful franchises in the National Football League had been well sealed - the team has sold out every game since the 2003 season.
Gates and company didn't invent the operating system.
He had better luck in sports and real estate. "His vision led to the construction of CenturyLink Field and the building of a team that played in three Super Bowls, winning the championship in Super Bowl XLVIII".
ESPN Has Major Update On Steelers RB Le’Veon Bell

He also owned Tatoosh, one of the world's 100 largest yachts. He also cofounded Seattle's Museum of Pop Culture (formerly the Experience Music Project) and Everett's Flying Heritage and Combat Armor Museum.
He spent millions more on a collection of vintage warplanes and funded the first non-government rocket to make it into space.
He was also credited with putting Seattle on the map for the NFL.
