Allen enjoyed walking with the Saint Paul Hiking Club. He joined the Twin Cities Tall Club (TCTC) and went to many weekend meets around the country. He liked to vacation somewhere warm in late winter so that he didn’t have to wear socks when he got back to Minnesota. Alan was his constant companion and love of his life for 27 years. He was a gregarious guy and had many friends.

His death was sudden and is mourned by friends and family.
