Obituary Condolences

ALLEN, J Denton
May 16, 1934-April 5, 2014.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Patricia B. Allen, and is survived by his daughter, Jennifer D. Allen; son, Martin A. Boskovich; and grandchildren, Martin A. Boskovich, Jr., Jordan Boskovich, Nathan Boskovich and Christian Boskovich. He will be sorely missed.

After serving in the Navy and graduating from the University of Utah, he worked at Jet Propulsion Laboratory, where he headed up the team that designed the camera aboard Mariner IV that took the first closeup pictures of Mars. He spent the later part of his career in marketing, including at Xerox Corporation and Loral Space & Communications, before retiring in 1998.

Mass of Christian Burial is today at the Chapel at St. Francis High School in La Canada Flintridge, California, followed by a graveside ceremony at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Glendale, California. Cabot and Sons, Pasadena Directors
