ALLEN, RICHARD MARSHALL, June 11, 1998 – November 12, 2004
Richard Marshall Allen, 6, of Malad, passed away November 12, 2004 at his home following a lifelong fight with Tay-Sachs disease.
Marshall was born June 11, 1998 in Logan, Utah, a son of Richard and Diane Robbins Allen. He had rounded out the family, joining Parker, Kendra and Charlotte.
Marshall was a typical little boy, with a love for the outdoors and animals. He loved to camp, listen to the bubbling brook and feel the warmth of the campfire.
He taught all who knew him about courage, patience and long suffering. He bore his trials with hardly a complaint. The love Marshall brought to his home cannot be appreciated unless you have the chance to care for such a special spirit. It has been Marshall’s family who benefitted the most by being blessed to have him in their lives.
He is survived by his parents, Richard and Diane R. Allen of Malad; brother, Parker; sisters, Kendra and Charlotte; grandparents, Kenneth D. and Laurine Corbridge Allen of Montpelier, Charles and Myra Robbins of Merritt Island, Florida.
Funeral services were held November 16, 2004. Burial was in the St. John Cemetery.
