Dale Everett Allen, age 77, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, April 26, 2011, surrounded by his family and in the home he loved.
Dale was born in Plover, Wis., on Jan. 21, 1934, to Cecil and Gertrude (Iams) Allen. He graduated from P.J. Jacobs High School in Stevens Point in 1951. He was a Korean War veteran, having served in the U.S. Air Force as an air traffic specialist, from March 1952 until March 1956. In December 1957, he married Lorene Schwarz at the Methodist Church in Plover. In May 1957, he began working for the State of Wisconsin Department of Transportation as a driver license examiner in Wausau, and later as a medical review analyst at Hill Farms State Office Building in Madison. He retired in 1990 after 33 years of service to the State of Wisconsin. After retiring, Dale enjoyed spending time with family, listening to music, genealogy, and taking day trips throughout Wisconsin with Lorene. He and Lorene also delighted in having morning and afternoon coffee breaks, reading the newspaper and reminiscing.
Throughout his life, Dale never compromised his integrity or reputation. He was an honest and humble man who always put others before himself. He never complained and continued to have a robust sense of humor, even in life's most difficult moments. Our lives are lesser with his passing but greater because of his life and the love he shared with us all - he was our rock. He was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, brother-in-law, uncle, and friend. He will always be loved and will always be missed.
Dale is survived by his loving wife of 53 years, Lorene; their three sons and family, Brian and Ruth (Sherbeck) Allen of Waunakee, Lowell and Lucy (Hinton) Allen of Shelbyville, Ky., and their four children, Hailey, Grant, Perry, and Cole, and Todd and Jenny (Doucette) Allen of Waunakee and their three children, Max, Paige, and Gus. He is further survived by his sisters-in-law, Ramona Allen of Stevens Point, Alene Losey of Hancock, Lois (Richard) Klein of Tucson, Ariz., and Evelyn (Robert) Beggs of Hancock; and many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents; and two brothers, Harold and Lawrence Allen.
A Funeral Service will be held at 11 a.m., Saturday, May 7, 2011, at BOSTON FUNERAL HOME, Stevens Point, with the Rev. Eric Hambrock officiating. Visitation will also be held on Saturday from 9:30 a.m. until time of service. Burial will take place in McDill Cemetery in Whiting.
