GARY J. ALLEN (Age 68)  

Gary left this world on November 21, 2012. Born on July 4, 1944, this firecracker left a spark that filled everyone's heart. He will be missed. Gary was a longtime employee of WETA, a place dear to his heart. His career began in 1963 and extended, with a brief break for service in the Air Force in the Thule, Greenland, until 1995 when he had to leave to care for his Mother. The next time you see the fireworks on the Mall on the 4th of July please think of Gary. After all, the fireworks were for him. A Memorial Gathering will be held on December 5, 2012 from 5 to 7 p.m. at Murphy Funeral Home, 4510 Wilson Blvd. Arlington, VA 22203.
