I am saddened to hear of the loss of Bill. It was a great pleasure working with him over the last 15 years. I will miss our talks, life advice and him teasing me of my 4 day work week! My heart goes out to his family. He will truly be missed.

We are saddened to hear about the passing of Bill. He was a wonderful neighbor and a kind soul. Bill was always willing to be helpful with any issues or concerns in the community. He was insightful in our discussions about many topics, and he had a great wit and sense of humor. We always enjoyed our many talks with him. We extend our sincerest condolences to Liz and the entire Allen family. Bill will be missed, but will not be forgotten.

Growing up we’d stop off in Virginia and visit on our way down to Florida every summer. Bill and Liz were always welcoming and generous and I wish I was able to spend more time getting to know my cousins because I always had a great time with them.

Uncle Bill, I will never ever forget the stories you told me about your war collectibles and how you found them. I still remember every detail and have shared your story with many of my friends. Give a hug to grandma, uncle Bruce, uncle Jimmy, and aunt Joan , and watch over the rest of the Allen's. RIP

Bill was the best big brother a sister could ask for. I am heartbroken he was taken so soon before enjoying a long fulfilling retirement traveling to places he wanted to see but never was able to because he worked so hard. He adored his wife Liz and what mattered to him most was his children and family. My boys and I will always remember the fun times we had visiting "Uncle Bill and Aunt Liz" on our trips to Fla from Ct. We were always made to feel welcome. Bill had a Big heart and a very layed back demeanor. His dry sense of humor kept me smiling. My thoughts and prayers are with his family as you go through this difficult time.

We have no words to describe our time we had with Bill. He became a great friend and one who shared himself with us. We wish we had more time to develop our relationship. We will miss his home made bread, pulled pork sandwiches, coleslaw and his friendly face walking around the block. Fritzi will miss the garage door opening and getting a treat. We wonder if Bill will have a Ring doorbell in heaven, so he can look down on us.

Bill told me about his time in Vietnam as a Marine in battle. He went through a lot there and thankfully survived. I salute him as a fellow Vietnam veteran. He will be missed greatly. A very honorable man!
