One of the kindest, humblest men I ever had the opportunity to work with. RIP John. You broke the mold!

My deepest sympathy for the loss of John. May the God of all comfort be with you during this difficult time and may you find comfort in relying on God and family for support.

John, my brother, rest in peace. You have earned it.

To the Family of Mr. John Edward Allen: The members of Olivet Free Will Baptist Church and I would like to extend belated condolences to you for your loss. We are thankful for the courageous service rendered to this country by this brave Tuskegee Airman. May Mr. Allen rest in peace; and may the strength, comfort and sweet peace of God be with you always.
