Lloyd Jay Allen

Today, we announce the celebration of the life and legacy of the patriarch of our family, Lloyd Jay Allen, and his successful journey to the afterlife. Lloyd, a faithful servant of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, was called home from this mortal life on April 21st 2024, at the age 75. He was surrounded by his loving family as he passed peacefully and without pain into the spirit world, where he was greeted by his precious daughter Mindy, his parents Delbert & Margaret, his sister Marilyn, and many other righteous and faithful members of God's kingdom that have gone on before him.

 

There was nothing on this earth that shadowed Lloyd’s tremendous love of the Lord and His gospel. He spent countless hours studying the plan of salvation and learning how to apply its principles and ordinances in his own life. His testimony and belief in the Savior and his love for his children here on earth was ever present and never wavering.

 

Lloyd was raised to love the Lord, family, and country, and lived his life accordingly.

 

He was born in Tremonton, Utah in the beautiful Bear River Valley on May 10th, 1948. He grew up on a small dairy farm just west of Tremonton in Thatcher Penrose. It was there that he learned the value of hard work, discipline, and structure. And most importantly a great and enduring love of cows and the wonderful opportunity they presented to NEVER have to suffer the comforts of sleeping in. His brother Rick, I’m sure, can also attest to this great blessing of life on the dairy farm.

 

Lloyd served a 2-year honorable mission in the Kansas city, Central States mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He loved his mission and loved to tell the stories of it often to his family and friends.

 

Not too long after returning from his mission, he reunited with the love of his life and eternal companion, Deborah Pearl Gustin. His love for Debbie transcends this life and is not diminished by time or space. Together, they brought 5 beautiful children into this world: Sherry, Tara, Holly, Michael, and Mindy. He loved and adored each and every one of them all the days of his life.

 

Lloyd was an avid hunter and fisherman. He seized every opportunity he could to spend time with his favorite son, Michael, hunting in the mountains of northern Utah and Southeastern Idaho. Though not too successful in getting any big game, he was infinitely more successful in creating wonderful, treasured memories that will endure forever in both of their hearts and minds.

 

He also had a great love of learning, something instilled in him by his loving mother, Margaret. Over his lifetime, he collected hundreds of books and by the end of his life, he had turned his basement into a library. He was always found with a book in his hand and he loved to search out truth wherever it could be found. He loved to share the knowledge he gained from these books with his wife and children, especially that of which was from the healing, self-help, and church variety.

 

Lloyd was DI’s most valuable customer. He loved looking for and finding amazing deals. He spent many wonderful hours browsing through thrift stores, and by the end he had pretty much declared Somebody’s Attic as his all-time favorite.

 

To say Lloyd loved the Christmas holiday would be a huge understatement! He loved looking for and finding Christmas decorations and unique gifts for his family. Every year, without fail, he would decorate the inside of his house from top to bottom with Christmas decorations and really enjoyed having his kids and grandkids come over and experience the magic of Christmas as it came to life before their eyes. Observing their reactions to all the cool Christmas decorations, gadgets and dancing toys would light up his face and bring out his big signature smile. He did not make a point of saying it too loud but it was obvious that his love of Christmas was a reflection of his love for his Savior Jesus Christ. Christmas will not be the same without him!

 

We as a family will miss him terribly every single day of our lives. We praise and give thanks to the Lord for his life and how he touched, blessed, and enriched each one of ours. We love you, dad!  I love you, my husband! Now, go and enjoy your mission on the other side, and we will meet again on that great day!
