He most recently served as Director of Business Services at Minnesota State Community and Technical Colleges where he was recognized multiple times for his outstanding service. Faith, family, and fishing were of the utmost importance to Allen. He was a man of strong faith and character who was not afraid to call it like he saw it. His infectious laugh and smile have left their mark on many and will never be forgotten. Allen was a father figure to many, a cheerleader to all, and friend to those in need. Throughout his life he made many friends, but he always considered his four boys his best and closest friends. He adored his grandchildren and loved every minute he could spend with them. Allen's favorite pastime was fishing and family fishing outings gave him great joy. He also had a passion for sports and enjoyed talking sports and attending games with his family. His absence will leave a gaping hole but we will continue to remember his life with joy until we meet again!
