      Richard Lindell Allen, age 67, of Xenia, Illinois, passed away early Sunday morning, July 10, 2022, at his home.

      He was born April 27, 1955, in Flora, the son of David Lindell and Pauline (Trimble) Allen.

      Richard enjoyed time spent outdoors, gardening, and attending tractor pulls.  Over the years he worked alongside his father on the farm and helped with livestock.  He had also worked in the sawmill, as road crew for Songer Township, and as a mechanic at Knapp’s Service Station in Xenia.  Often utilizing his carpentry skills, Richard enjoyed tinkering and it seemed there wasn’t anything that he could not fix.

      He is survived by his daughters: Chelsea Allen and Paige Allen, both of Xenia; siblings: Linda Kay Allen of Xenia, Norma (Harold) Brooks of Xenia, Janet Sue Johnson of Flora, Judith Meadows of Xenia, Brenda Williams of Xenia, and Paul Ray (Bonnie) Allen of Xenia; and several nieces and nephews.  He was preceded in death by his parents.

      A funeral ceremony will be held at 10 a.m. Friday, July 15, 2022, at Frank & Bright Funeral Home in Flora.  Interment will follow in Oak Mound Cemetery.  A visitation will be held Thursday evening from 5-7 p.m. at the funeral home.  Memorial donations are suggested to the family to assist with final expenses and will be accepted through the funeral home.  To share a condolence or memory, visit:
