Harold Allen Obituary
Description: Harold Allen Obituary... Our Heartfelt Condolences To His Loved Ones...
December 31, 1942 - January 15, 2023
In 1999, Harold and Sharon Cox became a couple, blending their families, supporting each other, and making memories which included more camping trips and time with family and friends. Sharon preceded him in death in 2020. This new chapter of Harold's life made him a grandfather when his son Bill married Teresa Kelley in 2002. Although she brought two children to the family with her, Calista and Cecil, who Harold grew to love, he was not agreeable to being called "Grandpa," yet. Only after Calista had two sons of her own, Phillip in 2015 and Connor in 2018, did Harold soften his stance and embrace being Granddad. Calista and Harold shared a love of history and often spent time together watching PBS, having meals, and visiting. Cecil and Harold worked together on various jobs and had several memorable road trips. Ready or not, Harold filled the role of Grandpa with the ease, humor, and kindness he was known for. During this time Harold, Bill, and Teresa ran a well-drilling business and construction company. Harold also renovated a building on the corner of Main and Santa Fe in Fowler, turning it into apartments which he owned until 2020. In the meantime, Harold bought and subdivided property north of Fowler where he established his last home.
After being away for ten years managing a ranch in southeastern Colorado, Bill and Teresa returned home in September 2022 to be closer to Harold. This past Christmas and New Year was spent with the entire family together celebrating the holidays and Harold's 80th birthday.
Harold is survived by his brother, Art, of Fowler, son Bill and daughter-in-law, Teresa, of the family home north of Fowler, granddaughter, Calista Kelley (Michael Medina), grandson, Cecil Allen, great-grandsons, Phillip and Connor, nephew, Artie Allen, great-nephew, Scott (Yvette) Allen and their five children, great-nephew, Markus Allen, and great-niece, Nicole Berlind and her two children, as well as numerous cousins, good friends, step-children and their families. He was preceded in death by his parents, Raymond and Pearl Allen, and sister, Rita.
In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund has been created at Fowler State Bank. Bellwood Ford Ustick Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
