WERTZ ALLAN JAMES (BECK)
On September 8, 2009 tragically in an automobile accident in Beaver County at the age of 33. Allan was born January 12, 1976 in Altoona, PA, the son of Sheldon L. and Lois Jean Wertz and the late Mary Jane Wertz. He graduated from Hollidaysburg Area High School in 1993 and was a 1997 graduate of Saint Vincent College where, with honors, he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in political science. He received his Juris Doctorate from the Duquesne University School of Law in 2000 where he met the love of his life Amy Marie Mudrey whom he married on November 10, 2001. Allan joined the law firm of Burns, White & Hickton as an Associate in November, 2000. He practiced in the areas of professional malpractice, general insurance, defense litigation, commercial litigation, complex litigation and asbestos defense litigation. He was a member of the bar in Pennsylvania and West Virginia and was a member of the American, Pennsylvania and Allegheny Bar Associations. Allan and Amy lovingly brought into their world two children, Abby Marie, 4½ and Joseph Allan, 16 months. He was a devoted father and husband whose world revolved around his family. They made their home in Green Tree Boro. He was an avid NASCAR fan attending annual races in Dover, DE and Charlotte NC. Steelers football was a passion of Allan's as was his music. He could play a 'mean' air guitar. Allan was the son-in law of Nancy and Richard Sed and James and Judy Mudrey; brother of Patricia and Greg Bunn, Brian and J.B.
