Roy Allen

In Memory of Roy Allen

On Tuesday, February 21st my father-in-law, Roy Allen lost his battle with Cancer. Roy was a Master Carpenter who loved to share his talents to help others. In 1991, I asked him if there was a way to convert the old red barn at Rocky Fork Lake into a facility with bathrooms, showers and kitchenette for KAMP. He took one look and said “anything is possible” and he made my wish come true. A few years later, he was the contractor who poured the foundation for the Dovetail Pavilion. Roy loved to help out with KAMP Dovetail in any way he could. He would never take any pay for the supplies or his labor. He always told me it was a labor of love.

Memorial contributions can be made to S.A.T.H. You may make a memorial contribution online using the form below.

Thank you for the love and support you have given my family and me during this difficult time.

I love you all, Linda
