Allon raised three children, Nicole (Barnes) Moss, Nathanial Barnes and Nicolis Barnes, and had eight grandchildren and six great-grandchildren, whom he loved immensely.

Allon was preceded in death by his sisters Charlotte and Barbara, and a grandchild, Garrett.

He passed away Sunday, Sept. 19, 2021, at home with his loving wife, Tracy Barnes, by his side.
