(ancestry.com message on September 18, 2019 from James Quick): “Good evening. Yes, Allen died in California. It was in an accident in a Jeep. An inglorious end for a seemingly fine young man. The pictures of him in uniform really paint him in a great light. Hope this helps. Glad to help in any way I can. James Quick”
