    Allen was one of the best persons I worked for and worked with at Kemet. Always had a smile for people (me) even when I knew that he was under a lot of pressure. He helped make me a successful and proud maintenance man at Union Carbide/Kemet. Sincere condolences to the family. Rest in peace, Allen

    I was so sorry to hear of Allen’s passing. I enjoyed talking with him when I walked my dogs and he was walking his Clancy. I was happy to meet his grandson and family as they were working at Allen’s house. Prayers of comfort and strength for Elva and family.
