He is also survived by many loving nieces and nephews.

As a lifelong resident of Everett, Allen dedicated himself to the people of Everett in many capacities. Allen was a graduate of Everett High School, class of 1974. He worked as a Respiratory Therapist at the Cambridge Health Alliance, Everett campus for 44 years. He dedicated his time to serving others and worked on the front lines during the COVID pandemic. Allen was also a retired Millwright, member of Local 1121 Millwrights Union for over 20 years. He helped build the Everett power plant, known as the Mystic Generating Station, installing turbines, motors and fans.  

Allen dedicated 20 years of service as a School Committee Member, serving on numerous city commissions, such as the Everett School Building Commission, building the new schools for the future of Everett.  In addition, he served on the Everett Recreation Commission for 8 years, overseeing finances and other administrative activities and programs for both the Samuel Gentile Recreational Center and the Edward G.
