Daddy was a humble man and a true minister of Christ. He served his family, ward, and neighbors until he was physically unable to do so. He taught us to always do our best. He was very creative and was able to fix almost anything. He often made tools to make jobs even easier.
Allen is preceded in death by his parents; four brothers; one sister; and his eternal sweetheart Maurine.
He is survived by children Dennis and Lois Hansen, Kathy and Clyde Marshall, Richard and Wendi Hansen, David and Connie Hansen, Barbara and Bruce Gifford, JoAnn and Kyle Stauffer; 22 grandchildren; and 36 great-grandchildren.
Special thanks to Melody and other friends and neighbors who continued to serve him as he aged.
