  1. A Big THANK YOU to Allyn when he was a Pueblo Board of Health member in supporting PCCHD & PCEPA used product recycling and HHW Events benefitting the Communities of Pueblo County!

  2. Diane, My love and heartfelt sympathy are extended to you in the loss of Allyn. I will cherish the memories we had getting together in Pueblo when Bob worked at the hospital and our visits and lunch when we had a summer home in Pueblo West. He was a great guy and had such a beautiful and giving heart just like you. So happy that we have remained in touch all these years. We were close in High School and continue that friendship today. May God Bless you
    and heal your heart with His love and peace.

  3. Dear Dianne, So sorry to see you lost your wonderful husband. Sorry I am so late sending condolences to you. You were such a wonderful couple. Hope you will be okay. Love you

  4. Dianne,
    I am truly sorry for your loss of Allyn. I am thinking of you and hope you find comfort through good memories and the support of family and friends.

  5. Diane,
    I will always remember the many times that Don and I would run into you. We always had to stop and catch up on what was going on in our lives. I will always remember those times. We are both very lucky women. We got to share our lives with very special men. I will be thinking of you.

  6. To my ole buddy, Allen… And now Diane and the family. I always held a warm spot for both friends who always said hi and recognized me where ever we meet. Such a loss, such a loss. The good folks will be remembered forever.

    Blessing, friends, admiration is never loss.

  7. My father worked with Allyn when I was a youngster. It was always good to see him when he came to the house because we knew our dad really liked Allyn and was proud of his work ethics.
    I see from his obituary he continued being a good guy and must have been a good husband and father.

    My sympathy goes out to his family.

  8. CandleImageDear Bob,
    I remember your Dad from when I started work at SMC in the 70’s. Such a nice man and very well respected!
    What a wonderful legacy he left your family!
    I offer you and your family my deepest condolences on the passing of you Dad. May he rest peacefully.

    Sincerely,

    Carol Llewellyn

  9. I am sorry to hear of Allyn’s passing. I have very fond memories of him and I know my parents thought a lot of him. He was a good man. I am sure Dianne could tell us some stories about their times with the ambulances. My thoughts are with you. God bless you all.

  10. Dianne I am so sorry for your loss. 😢 You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Please take care of yourself and God bless you always.
    Your Friend,

  11. Dearest Dianne and Family,
    I worked with Allyn at the Pueblo City County Health Department for many years. He was such a great board member and President of the Board. He really cared about the direction and activities of the department. He was an ally to us for budgets and hiring good people. I loved working with him over all the years and loved knowing Dianne. He was the biggest jokster ever! I know the support and love that this family had for each other and I am blessed having known Allyn. He will be missed and yet his legacy will stay on with us all. God bless you and my prayers are with you in this time of sadness.

  12. Diane, So sorry for the loss of Allyn. I have fond memories of working with the two of you at the Pueblo Chieftain. My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family during this difficult time.

  13. Diane, I am so very sorry to read of Allyn’s passing. I remember both of you from Central Class of “55”, and the reunions through the years. I know he will be very fondly remembered as well as missed a great deal. Duke said it all very well.
    My prayers are with you and your family.
    regards, Nancy Ball Hale

  14. Diane,
    Sorry for your loss. I remember the good times at the reunions. If you need to talk call me.
    Love & prayers

  15. Diane, we are so very sorry, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. With our deepest sympathy, Jim & Leann Bergles

  16. CandleImageI met Allyn when I started working at the Fair back in 2005. He was always very sweet, sometimes stubborn, but always there to help when I needed him to. Allyn will be missed by all of us that worked with him at the Fair. Many prayers to the family and may Allyn now watch over all of you from heaven.
    Love,
    Lindsay Wadhams

  17. Sincere sympathy to you Dianne and your family. I know how hard you both worked on different class reunions – your work was always appreciated. May you have many happy memories to reflect on in the days ahead.

  18. CandleImageBob, Julie & family. Sending you all lots of love and prayers. The few times I had the pleasure of meeting your father he was an absolute joy to be around. May God comfort you during this time. Love you all!

  19. In behalf of the remaining members of Allyn’s Pueblo Central High School class of 1955, we want to extend our deepest sympathy and condolence to his close friends and to his family members, especially to his beloved wife, Dianne, also one of our 1955 classmates. In sadness, we have watched the candle lights go out for a goodly number of our ‘Cat classmates. Each one has been painful. No less has been Allyn’s. His passing causes the rest of us to reflect once again upon our own mortality. Would that all of us will have contributed as much to the betterment of humanity as has Allyn (and Dianne). We classmates are proud of them both.

  20. CandleImageI met allyn for a brief moment while taking care of him recently and he was amazing… Me and him clicked immediately.. He even used to call me the “warden”… I would NEVER forget the big smile on his face when I took him a plain bowl of Cheerios one morning for breakfast . i came out of his room so excited and happy because i have never seen ANYONE so happy about cereal… He had an impact on my life and I will never forget him.. I am deeply saddened by his passing and my prayers go out to the family.

  21. CandleImageDiane, Allyn, Bob and Tom, I am truly sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Mike Middelkamp
