Allen was killed in San Bernardino California when the B-24 bomber that he was in crashed into Cucamonga Peak during a training session before deployment. In the report she has, it states that fog and pilot error caused the crash. That happened October 29th 1943. Everyone on board the bomber died instantly..
Alvin his brother, was killed when a friend of his was showing off a hunting rifle that his father gave him. He said the gun wasn't loaded, pointed it at him and pulled the trigger. Allen was there and saw it happen.
