Obituary

Herbert P. Allen, age 92, of Hamilton, entered into eternal rest with God on Friday, April 16, 2021 at Capital Health Hopewell with his family by his side. Born in Trenton, NJ, Herb, as he was affectionately known, was a lifelong area resident. Son of the late George and Sadie (Nicholas) Allen, brother of the late Touffic H. Allen, Joseph S. Allen, and Selma Firestone, Herb leaves behind to mourn his loss his beloved wife of nearly 63 years, Jane (Grundahl) Allen; his two loving sons Mark George Allen and his wife Sue Ann, and Gavin Herbert Allen; two cherished grandchildren, David Mark and Sarah Elizabeth Allen; two sisters-in-law, Shirley A. Boan and Joyce S. Allen; and many nieces, nephews, and other family and friends.

Herb was a proud member of the United States Marine Corps from 1948-1952, and was honorably discharged with the rank of Sergeant. During this time, he served in Korea, and participated in the assault and seizure of Incheon, the capture and securing of Seoul, and the Wonsan-Hungnam-Chosin campaign. Thereafter, he was a member of the Navy League of the United States. Herb spent his career in the insurance field, ultimately as Regional Claims Manager of the Republic Western Insurance Company, before retiring in 1998.

Herb was a member of St. George Greek Orthodox Church. He was very involved with the Order of AHEPA, the American-Hellenic Educational Progressive Association. He was a Life Member of Trenton Chapter #72 of the AHEPA, a member of AHEPA’s New Horizons party, and served twice as Governor of AHEPA District #5. He enjoyed sports, and was an avid New York Yankees and Philadelphia Eagles fan. He led the Trenton YMCA Church Softball League and coached the league’s St. George AHEPA team. He also enjoyed salt water surf fishing and bowling.

Greek Orthodox funeral services will be held Wednesday, April 21, 2021 at 12:00 PM at the St. George Greek Orthodox Church, 1200 Klockner Road, Hamilton, NJ.
