Obituary

Allen, William (Bill) P., Jr. age 89, of Garfield, N.J, died on 5 November 2020.

Bill was born on May 30, 1931 in Shreveport, Louisiana to Florence Barney Allen and William Parker Allen. Bill was a native of Shreveport and attended C.E. Byrd High School and Centenary College of Louisiana. He lived there for over 56 years, before his adventurous soul sent him to Arkansas, Durham, N.C., and finally settling in Garfield, N.J. where he lived for around 28 years.

He had a passion for photography and a love of the ocean. He studied photography under William Mortensen. He later went on to pursue several business interests, but returned to photography when he moved to Garfield, N.J.

While he had many hobbies, he particularly enjoyed scuba diving, racing boats, water skiing, radio-controlled airplanes and cars, and building models of ships. He was a member of the ArkLaTex Diver’s Association and earned his pilot’s license around the age of 16, and loved to fly with his mother who was also a pilot.

Bill was a member at the Bread of life Fellowship in Wayne, N.J.

He is predeceased by his parents, and son Parker Allen Turner. Bill is survived by his daughter, Leigh, his daughter-in-law Penny, and granddaughter Amelia, along with many loving friends from his church community.

Special gratitude goes to Sal and Camille of New Jersey for their friendship and support to Bill who mentioned them often, along with many others who he considered great friends and made his life better by their presence.

He will be buried at Forest Park Cemetery, East in Shreveport, Louisiana on Friday, November 20, 2020 at 1:00 PM

In lieu of flowers the family suggests memorial donations to the Oceanic Preservation Society, a food pantry in Bergen County, New Jersey, or the Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana in Shreveport.

The Allen family is in the care of the Aloia Funeral Home, 180 Harrison Ave., Garfield (973-340-7077). Condolences visit aloiafuneral.com
