Michael Rhodes Allen

Michael Rhodes Allen left his family too soon on 6 9, 2018 at the age of 65 in Murray. He was born in Salt Lake City on April 11th, 1953 to Ralph and Audrey Allen. Mike graduated from Highland High and on September 14, 1972, married the love of his life Cindy Lisonbee. Mike was heavily involved in the Mountain Men of the Wasatch (MMW) and Rocky Mountain Men (RMM). He enjoyed marching in the St. Patrick’s parade in his kilt so he could show off his legs.

Mike was preceded in death by his mother Audrey and brother Ralph. He is survived by his father Ralph and sister Sue (Gleave), his wife Cindy, daughters Ursula (Clarence), Brooke (Chuck), Mindy (Trevor), Ashley (Chris) his son Kit (Shannon), 16 grandkids, 4 great grandkids, and 4 granddogs.

Mike loved his jokes and loved telling them. Somehow he always had a new joke to tell that you hadn't heard, most of the time. But he was careful to pull you aside if it was a dirty one, which were his favorite to tell. Mike always put his children first and was adored by his grandkids. He was loved by his family and by far, his favorite thing to do was be with his family. Mike is going to be missed by his family profoundly.

The family will receive friends Tuesday, June 12th from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saint; 3737 South 5600 West in West Valley. Please come as you are or in Mountain Man or Scottish Attire is also welcome.
