Llewellyn Boyd Allender
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Feb. 24, 1918
Randolph County
West Virginia, USA
Death: Nov. 7, 1944, Germany

Raised in Alton, WV, Llewellyn was the son of Charles Clayton and Anna Laura (Miller) Allender. He enlisted in the U.S. Army on October 24, 1940, and was assigned to Iceland in September, 1941. During WWII, Private First Class Allender was assigned to the 10 Inf. Reg, 5 Inf. Div. and participated in the Allied invasion of France. He was killed in action at Metz, France, on November 7, 1944. Metz is located on the banks of the Moselle and the Seille rivers, 43 km (26.7 mi) from the Schengen tripoint where the borders of France, Germany, and Luxembourg meet. The liberation of Metz came after three months of fighting, as the city and its surrounding were among the most heavily fortified in Europe.

Boyd was awarded a Purple Heart. He is buried at Lorraine American Cemetery, St. Avold, France Plot: J, Row: 8, Grave: 7


The following poem, written in 1944 by his aunt, Carrie Allender Wilmoth (FAG #72915685), is dedicated to his memory:

We shall meet and we shall miss him --
Miss his loving look and smile,
When the soldiers come returning
O'er the long and weary miles;
For his body now lies sleeping
On a lonely distant shore,
Gave his life there for his country,
We shall greet him here no more.

But altho his body's sleeping,
Yet his spirit still lives on,
And we hope some day to greet him
In a better, happier home.
No more war heartaches and sadness
In that lovely future day;
He's not dead -- our lovely Boyd,
He is only -- just away.
