Read Bill Gates' Full Tribute To Paul Allen

Bill Gates and Paul Allen founded Microsoft together in 1975, cementing the pair as legends in the world of technology.

Allen passed away Monday, and not long after Gates reflected on his time with his partner and friend in a statement:

I am heartbroken by the passing of one of my oldest and dearest friends, Paul Allen. From our early days together at Lakeside School, through our partnership in the creation of Microsoft, to some of our joint philanthropic projects over the years, Paul was a true partner and dear friend. Personal computing would not have existed without him.

But Paul wasn’t content with starting one company. He channeled his intellect and compassion into a second act focused on improving people’s lives and strengthening communities in Seattle and around the world. He was fond of saying, “If it has the potential to do good, then we should do it.” That’s the kind of person he was.

Paul loved life and those around him, and we all cherished him in return. He deserved much more time, but his contributions to the world of technology and philanthropy will live on for generations to come. I will miss him tremendously.

Allen and Gates, both computer enthusiasts, met when they were students at Lakeside School in Seattle at ages 14 and 12.
