Rest in Peace Trooper Allen. Your life will never be forgotten. Your dedicated service forever honored. As we were traveling south of Fairfield on I 45, we noticed flowers and a thin blue line flag. We knew it meant a fallen blue family member and found your story on the ODMP Thinking of you, your family, friends and colleagues.
