Thomas C. Allen

Obituary Condolences

Thomas C. ("Tom") Allen, age 61, died peacefully of natural causes at the Allen family home at 28 Paul Revere Road, Concord, on May 14, 2013. Tom was an avid walker, observer of nature, and reader of prose and poetry about nature and spirituality, particularly the works of Wordsworth, Emerson, and Thoreau. He completed a high school degree, and three years at Northeastern University in the 1960s. Despite struggling with mental illness for much of his life since adolescence, he overcame much of his handicap in the latter years of his life. Tom enjoyed frequent conversations with neighbors in West Concord, colleagues at Elm Brook Place in Bedford, and fellow worshippers at the West Concord Union Church, which helped both friends and Tom to better manage their lives. Tom is survived by his brother, Stephen Allen, and cousins Eleanor Hetrick and Dennis Grubbs, and their families, of Virginia, Arizona and New Hampshire, respectively. Tom's remains have been buried at the family plot in the Rosedale Cemetery in Manchester. A service of remembrance for Tom will be held at the West Concord Union Church, Main Street, W. Concord, on Saturday, August 24 at 10 o'clock. In lieu of gifts or flowers, please send contributions to Eliot Community Human Services, Elm Brook Place, 124 South Road, Bedford, Mass., 01730.
