Allen, 79, passed away peacefully surrounded by his beloved family. Allen was the son of the late Walter and Iva Ewald of Unionville.

He was a lifelong Tuscola County resident. Allen was united in marriage with the former Blythe Humphrey on April 11, 1953. They celebrated their fifty-ninth wedding anniversary in April of 2012.

Allen retired from GM/Saginaw Division after thirty-two years as a journeyman tinsmith. He was also a full time farmer.

Allen served his country proudly as a member of the US Navy during the Korean War. He was a lifetime member of the Fairgrove VFW Post #7486 and believed strongly in supporting the American veterans.

Allen enjoyed boating, hunting, fishing, long drives along the beautiful Great Lakes, polka music, and time spent with his family and a host of friends.

Allen is survived by his wife, Blythe of Fairgrove; two daughters, Sue (Darrell) Popp of Caro and Brenda Ryan of Akron; two sons, John (Leigh Ann) Ewald of Fairgrove and Brian (Alli) Ewald of Sun Lakes, Arizona; fifteen grand children and thirteen great-grandchildren.

In addition to his parents, Allen was preceded in death by three brothers and two sisters.

In keeping with Allen's wishes, cremation has taken place. A Memorial Service was held at the Ransford Collon Funeral Home in Caro on Thursday, June 28, 2012 with Rev. Daniel L. Gonder officiating. Military honors were held by the U.S. Navy.

It would make Allen proud if donations be made in his name to Fairgrove VFW Post #7486 Fairgrove, MI. or the USS Edson – Saginaw Valley Naval Ship Museum, Bay City, MI.

The family was assisted with these arrangements by the Ransford Collon Funeral Home of Caro.
