Allen Joseph Aleman, a native of Rabbit Island and a longtime resident of Stephensville, passed away while surrounded by his loving family, on Wednesday, May 22, 2019 at the age of 82.

Born on June 28, 1936 to the late Steward "Phillip" and the late Fedora Aucoin Aleman, Allen leaves to cherish his memory, his loving wife of 37 years, Diana Cortez Aleman; his son-in-law, Roger D. Craft; his children, Julie (Fonda) Aleman, Debra (Dennis) Foster, Butch Stocker, Susie (Clayton) Billiot, Janet (Floyd) Broussard, and Gwen Aleman; brothers and best friends, Calvin (Lydia) Alemand, and Roy (Gaydell) Alemand; three sisters, Hazel Landry, Alma "Toot" Glavin, and Betty (Gilbert) Blanchard; ten grandchildren and twenty great grandchildren; and Madison Williams, who held a special place in his heart.

He was also preceded in death by his beloved daughter, Cindy Aleman Craft; one brother, Collins Aleman; and two sisters, Margaret Rhodes and Maudrey Bailey.

Allen loved and lived his life to the fullest. He had a great love for the outdoors and could often be found fishing, hunting, or on his wharf cooking for his family. Allen proudly served his nation in the United States Army and served as a Military Police Officer. He was honorably discharged at the rank of Corporal. After his enlistment, Allen began work for the United States Post Office where he diligently worked until his retirement in 1999. After 40 years of service, he dedicated his time to his family and enjoyed his life. Included in his hobbies was bowling, running 5ks, camping, and dancing with his wife.
