Lyndon Wallace Allen
Lyndon Wallace Allen passed away Oct. 24, 2003, at Ebenezer Covenant Home in Buffalo at the age of 91 years.
Lyndon was born Sept. 10, 1912, to August and Ellen (Nuttall) Allen. He lived on the family farm northeast of Winsted his entire life, before he moved to Linden Wood Apartments in 1997.
He graduated from Watertown High School in 1929. He was a faithful member of the Oster Covenant Church.
Lyndon was well-known in the Winsted-Howard Lake area because he drove livestock truck for 43 years. In fact, he listened to the farm market on the radio every day until two weeks before he passed away.
He also farmed the land he loved with his team of horses and his dog right beside him. Lyndon always had such a wonderful outlook on life. He believed if you were good to people they would be good to you. If you would meet Lyndon he always had a smile on his face and a handshake for you.
After Lyndon became ill in Dec. 2002 he entered Good Samaritan Center in Howard Lake. He still had a good outlook, but wanted to be home free as he mentioned many times. He got his wish Friday night when he passed away peacefully.
He was preceded in death by his parents, brothers Harold and Raymond, and by Leonard Helmbrecht, who lived with Lyndon for more than 50 years.
He is survived by nieces Bonnie Varner of Buffalo and Phyllis Hawkins of Bloomington. He will also be missed by cousins Audrey Balgaard, Wayne Allen, Dana Allen, Dave Allen, and Karen Diers, as well as many other relatives and friends.
Funeral services for Lyndon Allen were Monday, Oct. 27, at 1 p.m. at the Oster Covenant Church. The Rev. Robert Ramphal officiated and interment followed at Nylunda Cemetery.
Ruth Deidrick was the organist for the funeral service.
Friends called Sunday, Oct. 26 at the Chilson Funeral Home in Winsted from 2 to 4 p.m. A prayer service was at 3 p.m.
Casketbearers were Wallace and Willard Strandquist, Jerome and Donald Thiemann, Gerry Diers, and David Allen.
