Richard Allen was my paternal Grandfather. He was born in Superior, Wisconsin in 1934.

Before he was born, Richard’s parents had experienced extreme hardship.

Richard’s father was Stanley Allen. As a child, Stanley spent a considerable amount of time in a Minnesota orphanage, along with the rest of his siblings.
