ALLEN, Robert B. "Bob"

ALLEN - Robert B. "Bob "
Age 78, of Orlando, FL passed away suddenly after a short illness on November 29th, 2014. Bob is survived by his wife of 40 years, JoAnn P. (Julian) Allen of Orlando FL; sons Joseph P., Michael D., Paul R., Eric A., and Robert S. Allen; sister Margaret (Peggy) Stanish; as well as by his grandchildren Matthew, Jordan, Taylor, Sarah, Peter, and Avery Allen. He was preceded in death by his parents Boyer B. and Margaret S. (Stull) Allen; and four brothers; Howard, Jim, Dave, and his twin brother Bill. Bob received a Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Pittsburgh in 1958 and was employed at Bethlehem Steel Corporation for over 40 years at the Lackawanna, Bethlehem, and Sparrows Point plants beginning in the Loop Program and retiring as a senior executive in 2001. He lived in Western NY for a large portion of his career, and was president of the Bethlehem Management Club (now Brierwood Country Club) in Hamburg, NY for 13 years. He was our hero and as a family we are heartbroken that he is gone. He was incredibly hardworking, honest, loyal, and kind. We could not have had a better husband or father, nor have we known a finer man. He will be sorely missed by those that loved him. Arrangements are currently being made for a memorial service.
