Korean War Vet.

*Ipswich Chronicle (MA) - March 23, 2009
Deceased Name: John Allen III
John Allen III, 77, of Partridgeberry Place, Ipswich, formerly of Mount Laurel, N.J., died March 16, 2009, in his home following his brief but fierce battle with lung cancer.

Born in Pittsburgh, Pa., October 3, 1931, he was the son of the late John and Alice Mae (Boyle) Allen.

Raised in Pittsburgh, Mr. Allen was a graduate of Pittsburgh public schools and attended the University of Pittsburgh and College of Wooster. A third generation "elevator man," he began his career working in high steel construction in New York City and later was self-employed as an elevator consultant.

He was a devoted father and ebullient "Pop pop" to his 10 grandchildren and any other children who happened to be in the room.

Mr. Allen was a Korean War veteran, a member of the Masonic Lodge and a member of the Moorestown Field Club of Moorestown, N.J., where he was an honest 18 handicap.


He was predeceased by two grandchildren, Evan and Lillie.

A memorial service and burial of his remains will be held later this summer in Chatham. Arrangements are under the direction of Whittier-Porter Funeral Home of Ipswich.

Memorial contributions in his name may be made to Stepping Stones Museum for Children, Matthews Park, 303 West Ave., Norwalk, CT 06850.
