Allen James Williams, 64, of Harrisburg, passed away peacefully on Monday, December 28, 2020 at his home after a brief illness.

Allen began his illustrious career as a computer engineer with Xerox, then the US Army War College in Carlisle, the US Navy’s Mechanicsburg Naval Depot, and retired from the New Cumberland Army Depot.
Allen was a loving father and grandfather, a passionate gardener, and a fantastic chef. He enjoyed the beach with his children and grandchildren while crabbing with them each year.

Brian, I’m sure you don’t remember me, but I went to Edison with you and Allen. I remember him as being a really kind guy. I am so sorry to hear he passed. I wish you and your whole family the peace of God at this very sad time. With Deepest Sympathy, Kim Rhine-Kelly
