Paul Allen‘s cause of death was the septic shock brought on by his battle with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma … TMZ has learned.
We obtained Allen’s death certificate, and it lists septic shock and immunosuppression as causes of death … but both were clearly the result of his cancer. According to the document … Allen died Monday at 12:35 PM at Swedish Medical Center in Seattle.
The Microsoft cofounder had announced nearly 3 weeks ago his cancer had returned after 9 years of remission.
Allen owned the Seattle Seahawks and the Portland Trailblazers, and cofounded Microsoft with Bill Gates in 1975. His estimated net worth was north of $20 billion. Allen was never married and had no children. He was 65.
According to the death certificate, he opted to be buried instead of cremation.
