They lived in Kansas before moving to Mooreland, Oklahoma in the early 1960's. Allen worked in the oilfield as a Pipeliner for many years until his retirement. Allen was a hard working man and loved his family very much. He was a story teller and was always telling his grandchildren made up stories that they loved to hear. He loved planting a big garden and showing everyone it. He always enjoyed taking everyone through his garden and showing them what he had planted. One of Allen’s favorite things he loved to do was get up really early in the morning and he and Vera would drive through Boiling Springs looking for deer. Allen loved dogs and he and Vera always had one in their home, sometimes more than one. Vera preceded him in death on December 31, 2000. Allen continued living in Mooreland for a few years but moved to Howard, Kansas to be closer to his son.
