Bud W. Allen

Our cowboy took his last ride to meet his Heavenly Father on Friday, November 20, 2009. He lived a long, full life and was fortunate enough to have spent it doing what he loved...being a cowboy. A memorial service will be held for Bud W. Allen, 80, of King Hill, at 3:00pm, on Wednesday, November 25, 2009 at the Glenns Ferry High School. Cremation was under the direction of Rost Funeral Home, McMurtrey Chapel. Bud William Allen was born in American Falls on July 7, 1929, to William Adam and Loretta Furniss Allen. He married the love of his life Betty J. Roesberry on September 13, 1951. Together, Bud and Betty raised their 5 children, Rick, Jody, Buddy, Bonnie and Bev. Bud's greatest pride and enjoyment was his children, 15 grandchildren and 27 great-grandchildren. Our pride in dad was tremendous as he touched so many lives and was involved in so many community activities throughout his life. Among some of the activities were 4-H, Rodeo, High School Rodeo, Draft Horse Association, Three Island Crossing, School Board and Little League Basketball. We would like to acknowledge all of dad's "extended" family as he touched so many lives and loved each and every one of you. Special mention to Lee, Gary, Terrell and Pat; we love you and thank you for adopting dad. The band meant so much to him and mom. Bud is survived by his loving wife of 58 years Betty, his children Rick and Sharon Allen, Jody and his wife Cindy Allen, Buddy and his wife Patti Allen, Bonnie and her husband David Bird, Bev and her husband Bill Arrington; grandchildren Joanna, Marissa, Vickie, Christina, Andy, Kari, Shane, Chas, Jason, Jared, Courtney, Kelly, Shawna, Carla, Andrea; great-grandchildren Alli, AJ, Malachi, Milika, Marlie, Mahkias, Rebecca, Samuel, Levi, Leyton, Jade, Bailee, Mckenzie, Caden, Hailey, Kylee, KaeLynn, Nathaniel, Gavin, Destry, James, Hunter, Kaylob, Saje, Gavin, Gage, Zane. Nephews, Lon and Rob Allen who were like sons and many other nieces and nephews. We will miss you Bud, Dad, Uncle, Great-Uncle, Papa, Big Papa and friend! He is preceded in death by his parents, 5 brothers and 6 sisters, numerous nieces and nephews, and a special niece, Debbie, who was like a daughter. Memorials may be made in Bud's memory to US Bank, 4 E Idaho Ave, Glenns Ferry, Id 83623, for a Bud Allen Memorial 4-H scholarship.
