On Thursday, February 13, a little bit of sunshine left this world that will add joy to whatever world comes after this one.

John Rector Allen, Jr. was born in Austin, Texas on May 12, 1932. He was a loving man who spread cheer wherever he went, a mischievous little dickens (in the very nicest possible sense of the term) with an irrepressible twinkle in his eye and a wonderful smile, a man who made lives happier because of his presence in them. He was a true gentleman of the old school.

Johnny was a member of the marching band at Austin High School. He attended the University of Texas where he was a member of the Kappa Alpha Order. His veins ran with the true Orange Blood of a UT man. At some time during his high school years Johnny developed an interest in amateur radio and he was active in the hobby for the rest of his life. His call sign was W5TQL. For most of his business career he was employed by Leif Johnson Ford, first as a salesman then spending many years as sales manager.

Mourning him are Carol, his wife of 24 years; his son, his daughter, and his stepdaughter.
