Gerald’s Obituary Gerald R. Allen, of Strafford, New Hampshire, passed away on Monday, December 23, 2019, 3 days before his 68th birthday. After a heart attack at Frisbee Memorial Hospital, he was surrounded by family. Jerry was born on December 26, 1951, in Exeter, NH, to Katherine Nellie Bragdon (Gardella) and Russell Kenneth Allen Jr. Jerry is survived by his loving wife of 24 years, Donna Allen (Childs) of Strafford; his youngest daughter, Brandi Lynne Allen; his children from prior marriages, Scott Hawkins, Stacy and Ricky; 5 grandchildren; his two brothers, Russell Allen and Theodore Allen and his wife Karen; his sister Candice Daggett and her husband William; many nieces, nephews, in laws and other beloved family and friends. He is preceded in death by his parents and two sons, Gerald Jr. and Richard William Allen. Jerry has always had a giving heart and a love for family. As the oldest of four, he often helped his parents with his younger siblings, once taking a year off school when his mother became ill. In his younger days, he loved playing in the woods, hunting, fishing and sneaking dad’s tools to build tree houses with his siblings. He carried his love of hunting and fishing throughout his life. He was employed at Thompson Center Arms in Rochester for over 21 years, the place he met the love of his life, Donna, in 1990. Donna and Jerry lived together almost inseparable for nearly 30 years, where “Pops” would sit in his chair, and they’d spend time around the kitchen table, usually surrounded by family and friends. He was a strong patriarch of his family, a good friend to all, and a man who would give his shirt for someone in need. Jerry was deeply loved, and he will be missed by many. A celebration of life will be held Monday, January 6, 2020, 4-8PM, at the American Legion on 94 Eastern Ave, Rochester, NH. Everyone is welcome. Read More
