  1. I knew Allen from kinder corporation a very kind and gentle person.he will be missed by all that knew him.

  2. Took care of Allen in Hesston for many years, he was always very friendly and his smile and laugh was contagious. He always asked to see pictures of my daughter and we would talk about cars a lot and he wanted to see my race car so I drove it to work a few times for him. He will be dearly missed!! Prayer with the family in the time of their loss.

  3. I remember Allen so well from First Menninite Church.
    He was always at the door as an usher with a bulletin in hand, a firm handshake and was always helpful and in directing people to their seats.
    His friendliness was genuine and
    Allen really had the gift if Service.
    My Sympathy to the family during your time of loss
