Allen, known to many as Big Al, Slim or AQ was born in Weld County, Colo. From there his family returned to his hometown of Pekin Ill. where he grew up on a working farm and attended a one room country school. Allen could not wait to see the world and joined the U.S. Navy at age 17 in 1953. He served on a mine sweeper as a gunners mate in the Pacific theater for — yrs. After the Navy Allen started a career in trucking and logged over 2 million miles on the road - pretty impressive! Over all his years on the road, Allen has visited all 50 states numerous times. As an avid golfer, Allen was also lucky enough to have had two hole-in-ones. Allen loved to entertain and celebrate life with his loved ones and will be remembered as a dear, sweet, caring man that touched so many people in his life.
