Leonard G. Allington
October 3, 1939 - February 13, 2016
Leonard Gayle Allington, 76, passed away February 13, 2016 at his home in Burns, Oregon after many months of failing health.
Leonard was born on October 3, 1939 in Fullerton, Nebraska to Clyde and Alene Stott Allington. At the age of 3 his family moved to Nampa, Idaho where Leonard graduated from high school in 1959. He worked for Meridian Millworks until 1965 when he made a life changing move to Bend, Oregon. It was in Bend that Leonard met his wife of 48 years, Floydette Eveland. The two were married in Tygh Valley, Oregon on November 29, 1968. The couple had 2 sons, Howard in 1970 and Nathan in 1974.
Leonard worked for Bend Millworks almost 40 years when he retired in 2005. After retirement the Allingtons moved to Burns, Oregon to be close to their 3 granddaughters.
Family and friends remember Leonard as patient, a good listener who could keep a secret, and very giving of his time and resources. He had a tradition of singing HAPPY BIRTHDAY in a loud, everybody is going to know, voice to his friends.
Leonard loved to fish, trap, skin and hunt. He was happiest fishing for steelhead on the lower Deschutes River. In his retirement years he introduced his granddaughters to fishing as they took summer camping trips.
Leonard is survived by his wife Floydette, son Howard and wife Stacey and two grandsons Kaden and Karsen of Kalama, Washington, son Nathan and wife Lease and three granddaughters Abby, Elsa and Cassie of Burns, Oregon. A sister, Clydette Newbold of Meridian, Idaho and many nieces, nephews and cousins. A private family service will be held in the spring. Contributions in Leonard Allington's memory can be made to the National Rifle Association. LaFollette's Chapel is in charge of arrangements.
