Dad, I miss you more each day you are gone. My mind is flooded with great memories and appreciation for the love and kindness you taught me. You're a real pisser and I'm proud to be your son. Love Dicker Do.

Although I only met him a few times, he was a very jovial man. But knowing many of the children he raised, He had to be a great man. Our prayers our with the whole Allen family.

We were your dad's neighbors since 1984. Our house was directly behind his. We always enjoyed our view of the pond, the flowers and the many birds he fed. We had a trampoline in our backyard for awhile and once Larry was laying in the middle of it looking at clouds. I very awkwardly climbed on and rolled into the middle, your dad watching the whole time. I have never heard anyone laugh so hard. He asked me if I would mind doing that again. What a wonderful sense of humor! I can imagine he will be missed terribly.

I worked for Lee at the Omaha Western Electric in the Mount and Stamp department almost 40 years ago. He was my first boss and what a sweetheart! He was a giant teddy bear and so quick witted. I only worked at Western for 2 years, but I have always remembered his name and his kindness. The mark of a man is not how much he loves, but how much he is loved. Lee was a giant in more ways than one. May God surround you with His peace in your time of grief.

Lee was my supervisor in the Wiring Department both in Lincoln and again in Omaha. What a guy!!! I have good memories of his smile, his fairness and his height. If you couldn't find him, just look under the ceiling lights. Bobbie Wilson Geiger.

Doug and I were so sorry to hear of the loss of your dad. We didn't know him very well but knowing the life that Carol leads shows the type of man he truly was. You guys were truly blessed. Our deepest sympathy and prayers go out to each one of you.

Dear Allen Family,
Joe and I are so sorry about your Dad. I will always remember his sense of humor and how much he loved gatherings with all of you and others! He looked like he enjoyed every moment and appreciated all his blessings, especially family. I'm happy that I was able to meet him and spend time with him at some of your family events.
Love to all of you, Dianne Theall Oliver
