John is survived by and dearly missed by his daughter, Amy Allee; his grandchildren, Zachery John Allee, Serena Adeline Allee and Angelina Darlene Allee; in addition, his two step-grandchildren, Alysha Rae Allee and Cody Nicholas Allee; his siblings, Dennis Kirkland (MaryAnne), Larry Kirkland (Susan), Sandra Durrant (Kevin), Susan Wilson (Kyle); and his many nephews and nieces.

If he loved you, you were lucky enough to know it. If he didn’t, you probably knew that, too.


His passions were family, friends, Louis L’amour books, fishing and the open road. He could spend hours telling you stories about his youth and all the crazy things he did. He loved to go for long drives up through the mountains and listen to his favorite music. He attended many concerts and loved all the classic rock bands. He was a loyal friend and he never failed to help those he called friend out.


His advice to you – take the time and go fishing.
