Donald Allen Jr. passed away peacefully on February 15, 2021 at the age of 90. He lived for 43 years in Council Bluffs, Iowa before moving to the Sarasota/Bradenton, Florida area in 1973. He is preceded in death by his son, David Allen, mother, Adelaide Price Allen, and father, Donald Allen. He leaves behind his loving wife, Nadine Allen; his brother Paul Allen (Arma Jo Allen), his children Patricia Oneil, Michael Allen (Vickie Allen), and Teresa Allen, his grandchildren, Jenna Beaty, James Oneil, Maria Carter-Giannini, David Giannini, Christopher Allen, Timothy Allen, twelve great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews.
Don began his career in construction as an apprentice carpenter and learned every aspect of the construction trade. Over the next 50 years he would be part owner of two companies; the first with his brother, Paul Allen; Allen Brothers Construction in Council Bluffs, Iowa, and the second with Billy Pullman; Associated Interior Systems, Inc. in Sarasota, Florida. His only hobby was helping his friends and neighbors with construction projects.
Don suffered for many years from the effects of pulmonary fibrosis. The family would like to thank the great outpouring of support they received through Don's illness and passing. A Celebration of Life will take place at Groover Funeral Home at Mansion Memorial Park in Ellenton, Florida at a later date.
