Allen Paul Dunlap “AP”, at the age of 53 passed away on Thursday, November 15th, 2018 in the comfort of his home.
Allen was born January 1st, 1965 in the small town of New Haven, Indiana. He was a tall, handsome man whose reassuring presence was felt at all times. He was also a retired military veteran. After 15+ years of service, he was honorably discharged due to medical reasons. He had 3 beautiful children: Kristina, Victoria, and Daniel with his former wife, Kim. While working overseas in Ciaro, Egypt, he met his current wife, Silvia. After saving his life, she nursed him back to health. He knew he needed her for the rest of his life. In 2008, he married her and soon after returned to the states where they lived happily together. Outside of spending time with his family, Allen was very passionate about cars. This was passed down from his father, Barry. Any car issues within the family, he was the person to call. Passion, strength, reliability, honor, and respect: these are all qualities that Allen practiced every day during his time with us. He was very strong willed and although a serious and disciplined man, he could never resist the opportunity to bring a smile to everyone’s face. Allen was easily the “life of the party” and his soul brought joy and fulfillment to many. He was a straightforward man who demanded little from those around him, and who expected only the best for his family. His legacy and strength will live on forever.
Allen is survived by his wife, Silvia; children, Kristina (Dj), Victoria (Gio), and Daniel; siblings, Sandy (Dan); grandchildren, Lataeya, Levi, Christian, and Joshua. He is preceded in death by mother, Linda Louise and father Paul Barry Dunlap.
