Stephen Edward Allen

August 20, 1954 ~ June 25, 2023

Steve, beloved son, brother, husband, and father passed peacefully at his home in Vero Beach, Florida with his wife and daughters. Born and raised in Miami to Mildred and Raymond Allen. He was the youngest of five children, Jean, Joy, Richard and Raymond Jr. He loved to fish and to us he was the world’s greatest fisherman. Throughout his life thousands of fish were caught and eaten and great times had with family and friends, and often it was with his younger daughter Jenny as his first mate. He was a gifted fullback on his high school football team when he met and fell in love with his wife of 54 years, high school sweethearts. He went on to learn the trade of glass, mirror and windows. He was hardworking, happy to be his own boss and run his own small business. His goal was to provide a good life for his girls, wife Lisa and their daughters Kristen and Jennifer. Handsome and strong, yet humble and gentle. Steve lived his life in the moment. Quick with a joke and always graceful, he told great stories with a beautiful smile. An example of empathy and kindness, he had beyond a heart of gold. He will forever be deeply loved and missed. We take comfort in knowing that he will always be with us in our hearts and minds. He is survived by his wife Lisa Allen, his daughters Kristen and Jennifer Allen, his sister Joy Bean, (Gary Bean), and the rest of his loving extended family. Friends that would like to share a fond memory of Steve, or leave condolences for his family sign an online guestbook at Arrangements are under the care of Millennium Cremation Service of Vero Beach.

Cousin Steve has passed over to the other side. Steve’s dad and my mom were brother / sister.

Many fond memories of Steve. Steve’s brother Buddy and I went to Steve’s Coral Gables High football games. Steve played first string fullback under the famous Coach Nick Kotys. Coach retired in 1971 after 20 seasons as head coach of the Cavaliers with a 160–33–9 record—his teams having won over eighty-one percent of their games played. In one game Steve was cut around the eye. The doctor stitched up the cut and Steve went back in the game.

Steve was a great fisherman. He loves his family.

RIP Cousin Steve

My Uncle Steve was so lovable, like a big teddy bear! He will be sorely missed! My heart is heavy but I give my heart in prayers and love to those of us he left behind. May God grant you the serenity and peace to carry on. God bless!

My father in law Steve, was a remarkable man who loved a good debate and was an informed person who, although we often disagreed he was always a graceful listener and embraced diverse opinions. We often stayed up when everyone else was in bed jawing. He also was a very versed and amusing storyteller. Some stories I heard more than once , but they were just as good on repeat. He was a funny man, often in the face of hardship. He always made me feel like family. He actively practiced the golden rule. Was a kind kind man. Easy to love. I will miss you, Steve

My best friend, fishing buddy, and best man at my wedding has left a huge void in my life and the life of his wife Lisa and his daughters Jenny & Kristy. I had the honor to have him in my life since I was 15 years old. he was in my life when my children were born, and all seven of my grandchildren . There are too many stories and memories and moments to share , but Steve will always be in my heart, and in my mind until the day I come and join you my friend.

God bless You !!

Love ,
Frank & Patricia Myers & family

Lisa, Kristy, and Jenny
My thoughts are with you all as you navigate this time with out Steve. This obituary really does capture the Steve I knew, growing up across the street from you all. He was always out on his boat catching fish! He was most definitely kind and gentle and always had a smile on his face when I saw him. He would always give me a hug when he saw me, even as an adult. He was there for us Ledlow kids if we needed anything. We always knew we could come across the street.
Rest in peace, Steve!

We had a lot of great memories with Uncle Steve fishing in Okeechobee, Lake Placid and the Indian River. I caught my first snook and dolphin with him. He always had a great jovial and happy go lucky spirit with him, especially when he hooked a big one. So many fond memories of good times with him as a family and my dad affectionately called him ‘baby Huey.’ He was always my dad’s lil brother.
He will be greatly missed. May perpetual light shine upon him. Our love and prayers are with Aunt Lisa, Kristy and Jenny.

Steve was a salt of the earth guy, and he probably had some salt water in his veins for his second great live, the ocean and fishing. His first, of course, was Lisa and his girls. I first met Steve in Coral Gables, when he and Lisa first began dating, and thought, “Holy Smokes, Lisa is dating a jock!” Well, she certainly picked the right guy, because he was a one of a kind guy. Kind, soft spoken, and compassionate, Steve was a good man…a good husband and father from what I saw, and he will be remembered and missed. Rest in peace, my friend.

A good neighbor and friend for many years, Steve’s carport was often a gathering place for fish fries, drinks, and just plain conversation. Sounds of laughter would drift across the street, evidence that friends and family were an important part of the Allens’ life. Everyone was welcome, and it seemed Steve knew no stranger. We will miss the everyday hellos and other ordinary encounters, and offer our condolences to Lisa, Kristy, and Jenny. May you find comfort in the memories of the good times you shared.

I can’t remember a time when my late husband, Martin, was alive and he and Steve weren’t going on a fishing trip together. Lots of fishing stories for them to reminisce about together in Heaven. Steve will certainly be missed by his family and friends. My kids still like to talk about “fishing Steve” stories . They both send their condolences along with mine to the family. May God give you the strength to carry on. You will have your memories of your years together to keep Steve close to your hearts forever.

My Pal. I can remember meeting Steve at a local glass shop we both worked at in the mid 80’s ….I was lucky enough to get partnered with Steve that had the experience and respect to handle big sheets of mirror/glass and showed me how to be safe…Then a couple months later he asked me if I wanted to go fishing in the ocean….Me being a freshly transplanted Hoosier at the time my response was “your not getting me out in the ocean”. Well he soon did and I soon realized his experience and safety at work paled in comparison to his experience and safety at sea. A couple times , after him getting greasy and fixing whatever the problem was and having the part on board, he would just look at me and say ” start it Mikey and let’s go”. Lol. And we did. We had fun and I was lucky to have met Steve on both avenues of life both work and play. I appreciate Steve , Lisa and the girls for always treating me like family as too the other friends and family members I’ve met through the years. I love you all. We had fun and we caught fish !!!!. I miss “my pal”

I’m sorry that you lost a great member of your family. I have lost a great friend, and he will be missed.

I have some great fishing memories I will never forget. We would sit outside and talk about his fishing stories for hours. I remember Lisa would grab the photo album, and we would look at every picture.

I have to say, I wish I could live half of his life.
He always said why spend thousands of dollars on fishing stuff, when you can take care of what you have, and keep using it. I will always remember that!

You will be missed my friend. Fly high, Steve hopefully I will see you again one day.

Precious memories of you was when I was very young with bad ear aches, crying and couldn’t sleep; you would hold me and walk the corner to see the moon late at night. It was the only thing that could put me at ease. You rescued a dog we named Foxy and let him still be a wild boy even though he was loyal to you. I know it was definitely hard for you sometimes living with three females, still you always tried to understand and always listened. Often you were the only voice of reason.-ha ha. You couldn’t have lived without us though! You were always supportive, and your only wish for me, all of us was to be happy. When I think of you, I’m very proud because you just simply loved. So fun, goofy, sweet and wise, I’m so lucky to have had you as my daddy. I will always want more time. I miss your eyes and your voice and you smile. When I look up at the moon and stars I will always think of you.
I love you, Kristy wisty

I crept up the fire escape of a hospital, to see a little guy with dark hair and a red face and welcomed him to the human race.

It was touch and go until we got you on soy, so you could thrive as a baby boy.

As you grew from towhead to manhood you kept the same friendly caring ways, that drew people to you all your days.

In later years you were on a quest for God and what is true, now you know the answers since to Heaven God has called you.

Even now if I look close into the mist of the sea, I can see you on the bow of the boat casting your line into the deep. And God will your soul to keep, until we all meet again in a distance tomorrow just beyond this world’s sorrow.

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
