Allen was a devout Christian, his faith played an instrumental part in his life, and he drew his strength from the lord. His favorite thing to say was the Lord never lets us down.
Allen enjoyed spending time with his family, fishing, being outdoors, and listening to music. He was a loving husband, father and grandfather, son, and brother.

He had an infectious spirit that was full of light even being sick, you couldn’t help but being drawn to him.
