I’ve known Allan and Sandy for so long, they are both more like family to me than friends. Some of my best memories were made with them hiking Mt. LeConte in Tennessee and all around Colorado. I can still hear Allan saying “It’s right around this next bend…” When I heard that, I knew there was at least another 3 miles to go, mostly uphill.
Allan is iconic in my family for eating anything, and looking at someone else’s leftovers and saying “Are you going to eat that?” If the answer was no… well, say no more! And it’s a common phrase around our house to say “As Allan Jones would say… Not just no, but HELL NO!”
Allan, I’ll always miss you and never, ever forget you. Happy Trails my friend, till we meet again.

It was never ending stories with Allen. I had only known him a few years from our time at CYO. He was always ready to teach the kids and be involved as much as he could, our last time together was putting seedlings into pots, he came even when the weather was crummy! I am so glad your last adventure was catchin fish in ND. God speed Sir!

Allan was a beloved neighbor and friend of our family who watched our children grow up. He loved listening to our daughter Brooke practice her piano and would ask to hear more while he sat on his deck. Allan always asked about how our son Daniel was doing in his sports and he wanted to hear all about when both of our kids went off to college. Our family will always remember the fun stories Allan would tell at our family gatherings and everyone will miss him. Kim will miss making krautburgers and other dishes for Allan to try and then give his approval. He was a respected man in our neighborhood and in our family. Our prayers are with Sandy, Blair, and family. God bless you all and rest in peace dear friend and neighbor.

Allen was the calm, cool, collected member of our North Shore gang (Jacksonville, FL). We were Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts together...Richard Pearce, Gerry Clayton, Tommy Barket, Roger Barr, John Orren, Bobby Huntley, The Caldwell Twins, Bill Alexander...Carl Merrick. Not to forget the girls in the neighborhood...Diana Jefferies, Teri Sinclair, Lee Ellen Messer, etc.
Allen, we'll miss you but never forget you. Thanks for being one of our buddies. All of us who traveled Tallulah Avenue with you offer our condolences to Sandy and your family.

Allan, we will always think of you watering the lawn which no one could compete with. Stories abound when you'd get to chatting and were an inspiration at how active you have been, and our pup Sadie loved to cuddle with her Grandpa Allan. I can hear you saying "I LOVE that Dawg". You were like additional grandparents to the kids as they grew up. We will miss you much and will take good care of Sandy.
