He enjoyed working in his garden and giving away most of what he grew.
One of his passions was to feed and watch the birds each and every day.

As per Allen's wishes, a Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, 4.00 pm March 8th at the Wellsville Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses, with Minister Allan Foster officiating.
Afterwards we will be gathering for fellowship at the Wellsville Alumni Center.
