Bob moved onto Heaven to work in God’s home, “chasing dust-bunnies,” Saturday, November 18, 2023. He blessed us for 72 years and led a full life. After graduating high school, Bob enlisted in the United States Army and served honorably during the Vietnam War. He graduated from the Culinary Institute of America, became an Executive Chef in New York City, and worked in restaurants such as the Waldorf-Astoria. Bob continued his education graduating from Cape Cod Community College and Becker College. He worked extensively as a chef in New York, New England, and Florida for 42 years. One of Bob’s passions was being a Ham Radio operator and teacher. Wf1m will no longer be heard. In later years, he enjoyed cooking at home and cribbage.

Bob was grateful and proud of his loving family and enjoyed 14 years with his wife, Lucy-jane (Earnest) Allan. He was preceded in death by his parents Andrew and Rose (nee Dedek) Allan. He also leaves behind his son, David Allan of Mashpee, MA; stepdaughter, Robyn-jayne Kenney of Bellview, FL; stepson Brent Vallee and wife, Wendy, of Newport News, VA. Bob also has five grandchildren, which he loved very much, Dorann, Dolfina, Eva, Tabitha, and Caleb. His siblings included a sister, Evelyn Dalton, Sister-in-Law, Emily Allan and brother, Andrew Allan (deceased), his nieces and nephews: Ann, Barbara, Jonathan, Benjamin, Daniel, and cousins.

We will be celebrating Bob’s life with a heartfelt remembrance on Saturday, January 13, 2024, beginning with a service at 2pm. It will be held at Church of the Holy Child located at 1225 West Granada Boulevard, Ormond Beach, Fl 32174.
