His cancer came back.  He did a lot of good things here in the Seattle area.  He will be missed.

First diagnosed in 1982 so he lived many years beyond what was expected.  Very generous man who did so much good.   It's a sad day.
Christians warned about the Antichrist for years. And when he came, they voted for him.

He was building a pretty cool aircraft museum up near Seattle....restored many.  Just hope his foundation continues to do so.

The paper here is wondering what will happen to the Seahawks and the Portland Trailblazers now.  They have no owner anymore. 

From what I saw he used him money fairly wiesly.  Did not want to lose money on different ventures.  Like I said he did a lot of good things with his means.
