James Robert Allen St. Clair James Robert Allen passed away, December 3, 2012. He was born January 6th, 1938 to the late Wilmond and Mamie Allen, into a family with 9 brothers and sisters, Audrey, Pauline, Norma, Jean, Kenneth, Smokey, Bill, Jack and Eldon. After a very memorable childhood( falling from a salt tank, and being hit by 2 cars, just to name a few of the memories) he joined the Army and served his country from 1956 to 1961. Upon his return, he met and married his loving and devote wife of 48 years, Claudia Jean Justa, on August 29, 1964. Shortly following that joyous occasion, he started his own family, his two sons David James and Douglas Robert were born. David fondly remembers lunch hours spent at the Diamond Crystal Salt Company with his dad where Jim worked his entire employment career, retiring as shipping and receiving supervisor. Douglas will never forget all the weekends at the family boathouse, fishing and shooting bottles with his BB Gun. Those two sons gave him the gift Jim loved more than anything (except maybe Claudia), and with the help of his two daughters-in law, Catherine and Terri Lynn, his grandchildren Leif David, Corey Douglas and Kaitlyn Renee were born. His face lit up whenever one of these kids were around. He is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews. We can only hope we are loved half as much as he was. We, miss you already, and always will Dad. Private family service has been held and cremation has taken place. Arrangements by L.C. Friederichs & Son. Memorials to the
