He was born in Prestonsburg, Ky., Dec. 30, 1935, graduated from Austin High School in El Paso, Texas, and served in the Navy, retiring as a master chief in Albuquerque, N.M. After his retirement from the Navy he worked in Las Vegas for several years and then moved to Curacao and later to Jamaica where he formed a second family with many good friends. He suffered a stroke in 2003 and was moved to Buckley so his sisters could care for him. He was an avid sports fan and scratch golfer who loved jazz, photography and being with family and friends.

He is survived by sons Dana G. Allen, David J. Allen and Donald H. Allen, all of Colorado; daughters Betty K. Wells of Arizona and Joy M. Allen of Kansas; brothers Thomas Allen of Texas and William Allen of New Mexico; sisters Mary Rouser of Alaska and Beatrice Wilson and Georgia Hertz, both of Buckley; nine grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

A service with military honors will take place in San Diego at Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery where he requested his ashes to be interred. His children will be handling other arrangements at a future date.
