The first one I ran (as a user, though) was in 1996 - Sun Solaris/SunOS on their Ultra 1 machines that the university had. My current (but old) PC could have run a 64-bit OS since I got it almost 11 years ago, but I installed a 32-bit Linux for the first years.
But, no, completely removing support for 32-bit code is probably not scheduled for Linux, I'd guess.
