Allie was proud to have served in the United States Army, 11th Airborne Division Angels.

Allie spent most of his career as an Independent Contractor/Carpenter, also formally employed as a conductor with Grand Central/Metro North Railroad.

Allie took pride in his devotion to his family. He accepted the dynamics of life which taught us always to fill our hearts with love. Through the years Allie wore many hats and experienced many travels; the handsome young man behind the drums, the conductor on the train, the passion of falling in love and the birth of his four beautiful children. At times his life went against the grain and it was the grip of the hammer that filled the void. He never forgot that the key to life was to laugh, to love, and look good doing it.

He truly enjoyed being in the presence of his grandchildren playing and hearing the words, "We love you grandpa".

He Stood tall when he spoke of his children and the success they have achieved, it reflected the goodness deep within his own heart. He never took for granted the simple pleasures of life, like the smell of a good pot of sauce, the laughter of a family filled party, watching classic movies on a Sunday afternoon, tall tales of the hunting trips, golfing with his sons, dancing with his daughters and taking the grandkids on fun-filled adventures. This was a man with amazing eye opening stories that humbled him through his journey called "life". He was the author of his own story who constantly rewrote his pages to better himself right up to the very end. And for that, we loved and admired him with all that we are. He will never be forgotten...

At his request, there will be no calling hours. A graveside service will be held at St. Peters Cemetery in Poughkeepsie on Saturday November 24, 2012 at 11:00 am with military honors.

Arrangements are under the direction of the Michael Torsone Memorial Funeral Home, Inc. 218 Mill St. Poughkeepsie, NY 12601.
