Harold Lynn Allcorn
Harold Lynn "Lindy" Allcorn was a beloved father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and patriarch of his family. Born in Clovis, New Mexico on September 25, 1934, to Frank and Ethel Allcorn, he was the youngest of five children. His grandmother, Carrie Singleterry, helped raise him. He attributed much of his success and joy in life to her loving care throughout his childhood. In his teen years, he met his true love, Wanda Lee Payne while attending a church service at Santa Fe Church of Christ and later married on June 20, 1952, in Odessa, Texas. They started their family and raised five children, settling in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1957. While living in Tulsa, Lindy established Lind-Lee Construction, a custom home building business, where he designed and built beautiful homes. Wanda used her natural talents to decorate them. They continued their business and over time built homes and commercial buildings in Bloomfield and Farmington, New Mexico. Later, they established Silver and Sand Trading, a Native American fine arts and crafts gallery in Taos, NM. He lived in Kirtland, NM from 2005 - 2018, taking extraordinary care of his bride until she went home to be with the Lord on November 6, 2012. Lindy's greatest passion above all else was his family and he loved each of them dearly. His love and skill for hunting, fishing, and the outdoors were passed down through generations. He cherished every experience, outing, and drive through the grand landscape of nature. He found great joy and fulfillment in using his talents to serve others. His ability to garden and cook was just as remarkable as his heart for giving. He gifted his famous guacamole dip, homegrown produce, and homemade fresh apple pies to the local nursing home. His exceptional skills were shared with many as he remodeled friends' homes. He was always willing to lend a helping hand. He was, indeed, a master craftsman. Lindy was an active member of the Northside Church of Christ in Farmington. There he found fellowship and made many long-lasting friendships that ministered to him throughout his life. He loved his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and served him well. Even in his last days, Lindy longed to share Christ's light with those around him. While residing in Odessa, TX, our dearest Lindy was taken to his final home in heaven on November 27, 2020. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, May 29, 2021 at 11:00am at the Northside Church of Christ, 401 W. 20th Street, Farmington, New Mexico. 505-325-2983.There will be a luncheon at the Church of Christ after the memorial service.
