I have extremely fond memories of Mr. Allen growing up. He was so active in Boy Scouts and helped so many boys grow and advance through the scouting program. He was so skilled at helping and guiding the younger scouts, and he made the activities fun. I went on dozen and dozens of camp outs with Mr. Allen and he inspired so many by his selfless service.

Rest in Peace Mr. Allen.

I miss you both so much! I remember a child, my parents bowled at a long gone bowling alley in Platte Woods. My mom's team was bowling against Kelly's team. She told him, I have a sister in law that you should meet, and the rest is history.
I'm sure you are both in heaven dancing, singing, loving and kissing.

Rest in peace.
