Uncle Allan

Shared by Pamela Austin on July 21, 2020
Only 7 years my senior, he was the greatest uncle a girl could ask for, he always took time to play with me and entertain me as an infant, I remember him always laughing, smiling and joking around with me, I  wish my children and grandchildren would have the chance to meet him,  when I was around 10 years old my grandmother told him to keep an eye on me in the grocery store, he said it is okay mom if "Pam Gets Lost In The Store We Can Always Find Her In The Cooking Oil Section" Lol he was so funny, you will be missed, Rest In Peace Uncle Allan ✝️ 

A good friend and mentor

 I worked with Allan for many years at Kohler Power systems (known as the Generator Division back in the old days). If you didn't know him, he was a man of few words, but when he spoke, people listened. Fortunately for me, I got to know him better.

 Allan was a brilliant engineer who was highly liked and respected by everyone. Allan was my mentor and I contribute much of my analytical capabilities to Allan's patient and thoughtful answers when I would constantly ask him "Why? What will that do?". After enough years of that, I knew how he thought and rarely did he need to analyze my alternator designs.

 Since we worked closely together (literally, our desks were right next to each other for over a decade), we became close friends. I will never forget the many pheasant hunting trips we took to Iowa, deer hunting and fishing excursions on Winnebago.

Allan, you will truly be missed my friend!
