He was known to many as "Superman", an avid animal lover, a genuinely funny guy who could fix just about anything. Mike's favorite saying was "You can't fix stupid!" He wasn't afraid to die, he had made his peace with God and within himself. For those lucky enough to have been closest to him these last few years, you never would have guessed he was ill much of the time. He never stopped working, or helping others. We know he will live on through all the good deeds he has done and many laughs we shared. Mr. Allen was a parishioner of St. Anne R.C. Church in Fair Lawn. Michael was also a member of Elks lodge #60 of Elmwood Park and Fort Lee Volunteer Fire Department # 4. He was an operating engineer with International Union of Operating Engineers Local 825 in Springfield, NJ for more than 22 years.
Loving and devoted father of Christopher Allen and wife Trisha of Fair Lawn. Cherished grandfather of Victoria and Gianna. Beloved 11 year companion of Diane Fama also of Fair Lawn. Dear brother of the late James Allen and surviving wife Lori of Denville. Loving great nephew of Agnes Stenek of Saddle Brook. Adored uncle of Brian and Jason. Best friend of John McCloskey of Fort Lee. He is also survived by loyal canine companions Olive & Houdini.
