Paul Allen Dies at 65
Billionaire, philanthropist, Paul Allen died yesterday at age 65. For the past seven years, I have spent The Holidays in Kona Hawaii – four blocks away from Paul Allen’s estate. Right around Thanksgiving, Paul Allen’s 414 ft yacht Octopus would move into the Kona harbor. It was quite a sight complete with on-board helicopter, a substantial crew and shore-transport tender.
Not only did Paul Allen have great wealth, he also did great things with his life of philanthropy and involvement in various areas of innovation. He was a Seattle Washington native and took his beloved Seattle Seahawks to victory in the 2013 Super Bowl. To whom much is given, much is expected. Paul Allen lived that statement during his all-to-short life.
