Garry Owen Allen, 75 of Sloan, passed away March 11, 2020, at Pioneer Valley Rehab in Sergeant Bluff. With the hope of helping others, he willed his body to the University of South Dakota.

Garry was born May 23, 1944, at home in Sioux City, IA to Orin Sr. and Viva (Shoop) Allen. Garry was born what was termed a blue baby. Life held many challenges for him, but Garry met life with grace and joy and a smile on his face. In his younger days, he enjoyed helping his dad cut wood for the furnace and going fishing with his older brother. He loved his animals, all the way from his geese to his border collies. His heart broke when one of his collies was cruelly poisoned.  In recent years, he so enjoyed his volunteer work at King’s Closet. And all the many friends he made in Sloan.

He is survived by his sisters, Marlis Welch (Fred), Janice Conway (James) and Stephen (Myrtie) and many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents; sister, Joyce Gezt; brothers, Orin, Jr, and Ronald.
