Our condolences to the family. Bro Allen was our neighbor for five years on Guam from 1972 – 1976 and a part of our lives every since. We will miss his annual Christmas missal and sage advice but know that he has run his journey, paved many paths for others to follow and left this world a better place. His legacy of service to God and Country as a man, a mason and a Tuskegee Airmen will continue to inspire others to exceed against, seemly insurmountable odds, well into the future. We will forever cherish the fun memories of Brother Allen, his children and family. Thank you Willie for making John's last year's so wonderful. May God bless and keep you as we remember the contributions of this great American.

On our journey through life we run into unique individuals with an enchanting ability to bring calm in the midst of storm. John Allen was one of these individuals. He was eternally optimist and a rock of strength that we could all lean upon. John, we love you and will miss you as you journey into the unchartered realm from whence borne no man returns. May God continue to bless the family and friends with warm memories of your presence for 84 years.

Joseph, Shirley and the Hardy family, CMSgt USAF (Ret.).

I did not know Mr Allen, but my grandfather was also an airmen in WWII. He was not a member of the Tuskegee Airmen but he also did not speak of his time or experiences as a P-38 fighter pilot in the War in Europe. They were a special group of people and deserved their privacy for the atrocities they endured; although those of us who loved them wished we could understand and be a support to them. I lost my grandfather several years back, but think of him daily. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
