February 8, 1970 ~ February 8, 2023 TROY – Our beloved, John Allen (53) passed away unexpectedly but quietly surrounded by his close family after a brief stay in the hospital in Troy, NY. John was born in Poughkeepsie, NY to Nina and John Sr. He grew up in Marlboro, NY with his sister Amanda and his mother Nina, stepfather Jim and Jim’s children: Gina and Nicholas. He then moved to Albany, NY where he attended Guilderland High School and developed lifelong friendships including Al, Dennis, Brian, and Brandon. Later he found the love of his life, Miriam, and they started a life and family in Troy, NY. John was a devoted father to Landon and took pride and joy in doting on him and the family dog in every way. John looked forward to visits with friends and family and kept everyone laughing with his vibrant sense of humor and sprinkle of sarcasm. John was an adventurer at heart and loved to organize and take vacations with friends and family. He is survived by his loving wife, Miriam, and son, Landon; mother Nina (Jim); father John Sr.; siblings: Amanda (Wade), Gina and Nicholas; his aunts: Mary Ellen (John), Cynthia, Henrietta (Kevin); his in-laws Jo-Lynn, Mike (Barb), Ian (Carrie), Micah, and Jared (Andrea) as well as his much-loved nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, uncles, and dear friends.
