He loved riding his Harley-Davidson motorcycle and was a member of the Harley Owners Group (H.O.G.). He loved tinkering in his garage, camping, gardening with his late daughter Heather and had a great passion for cooking and barbecuing on the grill.
He will be remembered by his family for his fantastic sense of humor and his loving and affectionate manner.
Surviving along with his mother are his beloved wife, Sherri Haight Allen, whom he married September 25, 1982; his daughter, Meghan (George Conley) Allen of Lancaster; his son, David P. (Shannon Pennington) Patterson, III of Raleigh, North Carolina; two brothers, Bernard T. (Rebecca) Allen, Jr. and Terry (Kate) Allen, both of Elba; sisters-in-law, Patrice (late Curt) Haight of Batavia, Shelly (Keith) Weaver of Franklin, Pennsylvania, Sandra (Doug Williams) Denniston of Maine and Jill Anderson of Lovett, Texas; his brother-in-law, Mike (Deanna) Pieniaszek of Albion; his father-in-law, Stanley (late Donna) Pieniaszek of Albion along with several nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins.
Tim is reunited in Heaven with his daughter Heather Marie Allen who passed away on February 25, 2008 and his furry canine companions, D.O.G.I.E. and Jasmine.
