Robert C. Allen

Posted By obits On February 20, 2022 @ 8:34 pm In Obituaries,Outer Banks | 1 Comment


Robert C. Allen, of Corolla, North Carolina, passed away unexpectedly but peacefully in his home on Sunday, February 13. Born the youngest of three in Franklin, Pennsylvania in 1934 to the late Clarence Ellsworth Allen and Julia Irene (Matthews) Allen, he was preceded in death by his beloved wife of 49 years, Lois Ruth Allen, who passed away in 2010.

Surviving are his daughter, Heidi Corsello and husband J.T., of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, and daughter Denise Wagner and husband Clayton of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. He is also survived by four grandchildren, Nicole Corsello, Ben Wagner and wife Katy, Melinda Wagner, Allison Wagner and husband Gennaro Esposito, great-grandson Giovanni Esposito, and brother Jack E. Allen.

His was a life well-lived, devoted to his family, faithful to his friends, always enjoying the outdoors, and a man of his word with a sharp wit. He greeted you with a smile and a bad joke and had a wholehearted laugh that was genuine and expressive.

He proudly served his country in the U.S. Army while stationed in Germany and returned to work his entire career at Joy Manufacturing in Franklin, from where he retired as a manufacturing engineer in 1995. Upon retiring, he and Lois moved to their summer home in Corolla full-time. Bob enjoyed surf fishing, storytelling, and woodworking in his shop, building furniture and treating his friends with carvings of his ducks and birds.

A Graveside Committal Service for Mr. Allen will be held in the Spring where he will be laid to rest next to his wife at the Pleasantville Cemetery in Wesley, Pennsylvania.

Condolences for the family of “Robert C. Allen”

Condolence from Mark Cole on March 4th, 2022 5:27 am

So sorry to hear of Bobs passing. I had the privilege of working with him and getting to know him during his time at Joy. Bob mentored me in many manufacturing areas and I owe much of my success to him. He was such a great guy and I loved just talking with him.
I’ve often told of how I would proudly take a new design to Bob to get his opinion. Typically he would nicely explain my errors. I would go back to the drawing board somewhat deflated but just knowing he was right. He taught me so much and we always had a good laugh.
Miss you Bob.
