Allen worked with me at Coborn’s before he moved on to work at Walmart. I enjoyed visiting with him all of the time. He was a very kind hearted man that would give his shirt off his back to anyone. He made every person laugh and smile that he came into contact with. He will be greatly missed. 🙏💙🙏

Allen was such a nice guy! I knew him for many years. First when I worked for him at Cottonwood Canyon, then as his insurance agent and finally, he was my customer at Papa Murphy’s. Every time he saw me in Walmart, he would holler across the store at me and always something funny to make me laugh. He will be missed! He was always kind.

Allen used to call me to come over and listen to music and have a few hauensteins. Allen was one of the kindest souls I’ve ever known. He called me long after I moved to check in, and always found a way to make us smile. Gone too soon but never forgotten.

Allen and I worked together at Frye's Trucking. I started there in 04 and Allen trained me where to go and showed me the ropes of what to do. He was a great person and a very good friend. He would help anyone he could. He would give you the shirt off his back to help you. God took a great angel home. We will all miss you brother. God blessed me by bringing you're friendship in my life. Until we meet again. Watch over us and we all will see you again. God Bless You

We worked together at Coborns. One of the sweetest guys I’ve ever met. Always happy and was so kind! Rest easy Allen.

Uncle Allen, I’m just shocked to hear you passed! I’m going to miss our chats at Walmart every weekend! This brings up so many memories of good times with you, the Monday night Wine gatherings in your apt, the building of your Pergola at your house. I guess I’m saying you will be missed! RIP my Friend!!!

Allen worked with me at coborns, and when I had no car he would drive me back and forth to work... if he was able he would take me to dialysis or doctors appointments.. he Basically was kind when there was no early reason for him to be... and he was like that for everyone who he knew. I praise his life, and give deference to him in his passing. Goodbye my friend, I will see you again.. but not soon.
