December 9, 2004 - July 18, 2018
Allen Jay Dedon, age 13 gained his Angel Wings July 18, 2018. Allen is amazing, he is a fighter and has a spirit for adventure, no tree is ever too high for Allen to climb and he loves playing sports. Allen fought osteosarcoma for 2 years and never once stopped smiling or joking and his favorite person to pick on was his mom, who he regularly made jokes about. Building things with his dad is always fun and no one can ever tell what the final result will be until it’s finished. Allen has a light so bright everyone sees it when they meet him and instantly falls in love with him.
