He was a wonderful guy and very kind and benevolent. He is survived by his Brother Brian Lobdell Sr of Sarasota, FL and his wife Jackie and 3 children Brian Jr., Montgomery, and Angela. He is also survived by his Sister Susan Burns of Mc Henry, Illinois. Allen was born in Alton, Illinois on January 15th 1949 and was 74 years old. He attended Jr High and High School in Streator Illinois and played tuba in the school band. He was a graduate of Florida State University in Tallahassee, FL. He was always meticulous and studious and always thought carefully before speaking. Allen was known as the strong silent type. As a child he loved brusselsprouts. He enjoyed collecting things and was a lover of birds and animals. He will be greatly missed.
