Burleigh Ronald Allen was a loving husband, father, neighbor and true friend. He loved his family, golf, Pinochle, hunting and fishing. He was known to bring in quite a haul when he wasn’t clearing snags or re-hooking lines for the Grandkids. A devoted family man, he cherished the moments he had with his grandchildren. One of his favorite past times was spending time with his family and playing cards. Burleigh will forever go down as the undisputed family Uno champion. His memory will forever be captured in the hearts of his family and community that will miss him dearly.
