Allen passed away suddenly on December 23, 2009. Born in Texas in 1938 to Oskco and Nellie Standridge, the family moved to California early in his life. He attended Oak Grove School and graduated from Analy High School. He was preceded in death by his parents, Oskco and Nellie, and his siblings Virginia, Vernon, Cecil and Ralph. Allen loved the Dallas Cowboys, the Three Stooges, Budweiser and Skip's, although not necessarily in that order. He is survived by his loving companion of many years, Betty Smart; his children, Joe Standridge (Ileana) and Suzy Teuschler (Mark); his grandchildren: Jessica and Taylor; his former wife Kathryne; his sister-in-law Bobbie; numerous nieces and nephews; and his best friend, Claude Tanner, with whom he enjoyed many an adventure. There will be a memorial service on January 7th at the Pleasant Hill Memorial Park and Mortuary in Sebastopol at 11:00 a.m. There will be a private interment at Gilliam Cemetery. If desired, memorial donations can be made to your favorite charity.
