In Memory of Ken Allen

Kenneth Lee Allen was a beloved brother, husband, father, grandfather, Scouter and friend. He is survived by his wife, Kathy, children, Kristie, Mike and Alicia, his grandchildren, Jayden, Bailey, Delani, and Esme, as well as by his sister, Margo, and brother Ron and family. He battled cancer for more than 15 years -- and mostly won! -- til the very end.

Born in Manhattan Beach on February 27, 1943, Ken was proud to be a South Bay native and resident. He contributed much to his community, from serving in leadership roles for the Boy Scouts to ministering to his church community at St. Lawrence Martyr. He graduated from Mira Costa High School and loved being a part of the MCHS reunion organizing committee.

Ken will be sorely missed not only by his family but by many dear friends. That he had so many deep, lasting friendships is a testament to his faithful, wholehearted, and ever-dependable character. We are sure that many of the memories shared here will involve descriptions of Ken's convivial spirit, too. He loved to share good food and fine wine with his family and friends.


IN MEMORY OF A GREAT SCOUTER AND GOOD FRIEND, KEN ALLEN.
