Dale B. Allan

LEE– Dale B. Allan, Sr., 78, passed away at Maine Medical Center on Monday, October 4, 2021. He was born in Machias on March 15, 1943 the son of Albert Sawyer Allan and Frances Mary (Nicholas) Allan. Dale attended Machias High School, completing 9th grade before entering the workforce full time to support his family. Dale married Judith Dill, daughter of J Prescot and Hazel (Campbell) Dill, of Carrol on January 4, 1964. Dale had such a strong work ethic, he began working at age 12 at a sawmill and as a woodsman; and held a variety of jobs including delivering Pepsi products, plowing Route 9, and assisting with postal deliveries from Bangor to Calais. He then spent 35 years working for Lincoln Pulp & Paper, while simultaneously operating his rubbish removal business for the residents of Lee. Dale was proud of his Passamoquoddy heritage. He loved to create memories with family, friends, and his beloved dogs; and enjoyed fishing, hunting, gardening, and watching the Red Sox. Dale was known best for his sense of humor and zest for life. Making everyone smile brought him joy. Dale had a heart of gold, truly making a difference in people’s lives: for decades he grocery shopped weekly for a bed-ridden community member, delivered supplies from the food cupboard to needy families, delivered the Lincoln News on Wednesday evenings to several community members, and gave away excess produce from his garden. Dale was also known to take in those less fortunate, opening his home to many people over the years; as well as for caring for stray neighborhood cats. He was predeceased by his parents, his wife, Judy; his brothers Eddie and Jimmy; and his son Dale Jr. Dale is survived by his daughter, Mary and Jim, of Embden; his daughter Marguerite and Eamonn, of Baileyton, TN; his son Joshua, of Lee; his brother Paul of Lee;his "daughter by choice", daughter in law Sherry Corson; his sister Mary Jane Hanscom of Marshfield; his sister Linda of Alexander; his sister-in-law Elaine Allan of Unadilla, GA; his sister-in-law Bonnie Dostie of Brooksville, FL; grandchildren Jimmy and Renee Adley, of Hershey, NE; Nathan and Sikwani Dana of Solon; Dylan Allan, of Ashland; and Kadra Allan of Lee; and many special nieces, nephews, and beloved neighbors and friends. Special thanks to the Maine Medical Center Critical Care staff for providing Dale with impeccable care and for streaming the Red Sox versus Nationals game for him on October 3rd. Friends and family are invited to attend a Celebration of Life, scheduled for Saturday, October 16, 2021 at 1:00 p.m. at the Chapel at Lamson Funeral Home, Clay Chapel at 7 Lee Road, in Lincoln.
