Your families are in our prayers during this time of loss. I have many fond memories of growing up with you dad right next door. I remember him always being there for us whenever we needed him! He had such a beautiful smile and he will be missed greatly.

I remember Allen as a very proud man, husband, father and grandpa. He had an infectious smile that would light up any room. Both he and Pam made the trek north to Ontario, Canada to attend my husbands funeral only to turn around the following day and head home to South Carolina. That, to me, showed true stamina and just how much love we felt with each other. Allen will be greatly missed by his family and friends. He no longer suffers and is with his God, wife, parents and friends who passed before him. Rest in peace Allen. Love you. Sylvia.

Allen married Pam, my sister, in Toronto and one of the first Christmas's of their marriage, they came back home for the holiday. Christmas Eve Allen helped me to assemble a doll house (or hockey game, I'm not quite sure which it was) for my two daughters for Christmas. We were at it most of the night. What a good guy!
Colleen and Kyle, God bless you, and write or call me any time you want to talk.
Love, Auntie Nancy

Our deepest condolences to Kyle, Nicole, Colleen, Russ, Jeremiah, Sam, Belle and Blaire. I will always remember Uncle Allen as a gentle, quiet, and kind man. I loved listening to the stories my mom told about them growing up. She was especially fond of the story of Uncle Allen shooting her with a BB gun and not getting in trouble for it! I will always remember summer days at Gabba and Papa's, eating Sunday dinner and churning peach ice cream. He is a big part of my childhood memories. What a celebration in Heaven! May Uncle Allen's memory be a blessing to all who knew him. Our love to all of you.

Prayers and deepest sympathy to Kyle and Colleen and families I remember when Uncle Allen came up to Pa to drive us to Gabba and Papa,s house It was a new car He couldn’t figure out why it was rocking as we drove down the road Finally he found out I was rocking in the back seat and the car was moving with me rocking. Nothing was wrong with the car I just liked to rock. He was always good to us when we were together.
