Allen was born in Browerville, MN but lived in Milwaukee, WI until he turned 18 and enlisted in the US Army. During his 22 years of service his various assignments were in the Military Police, Infantry, Field Artillery, and Signal Company. He served in Japan, Korea, Vietnam, and 2 tours in Germany.

His many awards include the Bronze Star, CIB (Combat Infantry Badge), Army Commendation Medal with Oak Leaf Cluster, Good Conduct Medal with clasp, National Defense Service Medal, Korean Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal, Overseas Service Medal, Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal, and Expert Badge in Rifle and Pistol Marksmanship.

            Although he called Colorado Springs home, he met and married Mary Allen and they moved to Farmville, NC in September 1995. During that time he worked for the Enterprise Car Rental Agency and Home Systems Audio Video which he really enjoyed.

            He loved going to the movies with his friends and watching football. He attended the First Christian Church in Farmville where he and his wife were married in 1987. He joined the church on Easter Sunday, April 20, 2014, which was also his 78th birthday.

            He loved God and his country. He was concerned about the loss of traditional values in America. He was firm in his beliefs but was also a polite and gentle person and had a great sense of humor. Allen will be missed by all who knew him.
