Allen is known for his great singing voice, and he can often be heard singing by his apartment window. He always has a positive attitude and smile on his face, and he feels this has also contributed to his longevity.
Allen was born in Hyrum, Utah and enlisted in the Army Air Corp in 1940. After other positions in the military, he ultimately was a major in the U.S. Air Force Reserve, retiring after 20 years of service. Allen was married for over 60 years to his sweetheart, Helen, who passed away six years ago. He has three children, five grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren, and three great-great-grandchildren.
