I am sorry to hear of Otto's passing. He was a nice man and always had an interesting story to share. I sat in the courtroom with him as his clerk for many years. I use to chuckle over the amount of continuances we would get when people walked into the court room and saw Judge Alllsion on the bench.
Years after Jan's passing I set Otto up on a blind date. He was so sweet about it and was the perfect gentleman on our double date. It was nice to get to know him on a more personal level.
I kept in touch with him over the years and considered him a friend. He will be missed by many.

I just received the message today of Otto Allison's passing, I took the message with sadness and with great memories. I was a young officer when I first met Judge Otto Allison. I quickly learned that judge Allison demanded nothing less than true professionalism in his court, which helped pave the way for my career. Otto will always have a place in my heart for everything he taught me, and for the friendly advice Otto gave me. Rest in peace my friend you will be missed by many.

As a young police officer, I first encountered Judge Otto Allison in Concrete Municipal Court. It didn't take me long to realize that he was a man of extreme integrity. He ran a "tight ship" in the court room, but was fair with everyone he dealt with. I will miss his sharp wit and friendly personality. However, I am glad I was never one of the few who disrespected his court room. In that case, the gentle lion did roar. Rest in Peace, Otto.

I truly enjoyed working with Otto. His witty sayings always made me smile. I was only 19 years old when I started with the Concrete Municipal Court and he was my first Judge. He scared me to death with his thundering voice, but I soon learned his bark was much worse than his bite. I learned very quickly there was definate rules on how to dress and act in the courtroom, EVEN in little ol' Concrete. Being small town was no excuse to not be professional. Otto was one with moral character and integrity and his courtroom was run as such. One of Otto's favorite expressions was "peachy keen". Anytime I hear that phrase, I think of him fondly and smile. I was blessed to be able to work with him all those years. Thanks to the family for sharing him with us. If there is a courtroom in Heaven, I truly hope those angels tow the line, because if not . . . . Otto will set them straight! My condolences to his family.
