  1. I met Mr Allen as a young child when he would hunt with my father, Louis Atkinson. He was the sweetest man & let us call him Joe. I’ve seen him many times over the years and he was still the sweetest man. My deepest condolences to his wife, Clara, and all his family. He will be greatly missed.
