Gary R. Allen

April 14, 1959 — May 2, 2023

Gary R. Allen of Columbus, Ohio passed away at Kobacker House after a courageous 1 year 7 month battle with cancer. He loved airplanes, cars, rock-and-roll, reading, computers, his family, and Jesus. He also enjoyed biking with his wife in good weather, playing catch with his kids, and going for runs all year round. He lived life to the fullest and made good friends all around the world. To his friends and family he was known as a humble man devoted to God, with a strong mind and a good heart. He is survived by his wife of 32 years, a daughter, son, mother, and two sisters and will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
