Ronald Allen Obituary

Ronald Lewis Allen, age 63, of Myrtle Point, passed away in a logging accident doing what he loved, operating machinery, on September 26th 2023 in Coos Bay, Oregon. He was born to Ernest and Lynne Allen on September 28th 1959 at Mast Hospital in Myrtle Point, Oregon. He grew up in Norway, Oregon on his family’s dairy farm. His childhood years were spent working hard hauling hay and changing irrigation.  He attended school in Myrtle Point and graduated in 1979. His love for operating machinery started from an early age from growing up on the family dairy farm. After high school Ron started his 40 year logging career in the woods. He started out as a choker setter and worked his way up to being an equipment operator. His favorite job was running bulldozers and building roads. He used to say, “if you are in a career that you love to do, it will never feel like you are ever working”. Ron had such a giving personality, he never met a stranger and would give them the shirt off his back and more if they needed it. Ron was a family man through and through. His kids and grandkids were his pride and joy.  Watching his grandkids grow up, play sports, show their animals at the local county fair and getting to watch his grandson race at the local speedway, gave him so much joy in his life. 

Ron is survived by his wife Sarah, his children Beau Allen and wife Shawna and their children, Ashlynne, Dean and Kennedy. Courtney Allen and her children Max, Abel, Ava and Amos. Katie Jones and husband Daniel and their children Charleigh, Cohen and Natalie. Cameron Welch and wife Jennifer and their children Makenzie and Brielle and lastly Haley Partney and husband Brandon and their children Isla and Riggs. He also is survived by his parents Ernest and Lynne Allen, and four siblings, Ranelle Allen Morris and husband Wayne, Blaine Allen and wife Melissa, twin brother Donald Allen and wife Judy, and sister Deena Gisholt and husband Joe and numerous nieces and nephews as well as several other extended family members.

He was preceded in death by his Grandparents Donald and Florence Schmidt, and Edward and Carol Kennedy.
