John R. Allen, Jr
Of Anderson Township, Ohio, passed away on June 30, 2012 at age 90. He was preceded in death by his loving wife Beth "Minnie" Allen in 2009.
He is survived by two sons, John (Joan) Allen of Springfield, VA, Jim (Christina) Allen of Anderson Township, OH and 5 grandsons, Daniel, Timothy, Jeffrey, Christopher and Zachary.
"Wants to be: Aviator." "Likely to be: Private in Army." That's what appeared in John's 1940 high school yearbook. He and his classmates were both right, except his classmates were short-sighted. John wasn't. He retired from the United States Air Force in 1961, after a 20 year career, as "Charter Chief". He earned this distinction since he was in the very first group of United States Air Force sergeants to earn the newly estanlished rank of Chief Master Sergeant in 1958.
After retirement from the Air Force he had a successful second career as a draftsman for the Ladish Co. Inc, Cynthiana, KY and Pratt and Whitney Aircraft, Palm Beach Gardens, FL.
His greatest joy came from traveling the world and being an excellent father, grandfather and friend.
A memorial service with full military honors will be 11:00 AM Saturday July 28, 2012 at the Battle Grove Cemetery, under the direction of the Drake-Whaley-McCarty Funeral Home.
There will be no visitation.
Memorial contributions may be made to the Anderson Senior Center, 7970 Beechmont Ave., Cincinnati, Ohio 45255
