Allen Deloge, age 73, of Grayling, went to be with the Lord May 31, 2017.
He was the son of Andrew and Hilda DeLoge and was born March 30, 1944, in St. Joseph, Michigan.
He was raised in Alpena, Michigan, where he graduated from Alpena High School in 1962 and from Alpena Community College in 1964.
He was the beloved husband of Jane (Kuchnicki) DeLoge whom he married May 22, 1965, at St. Bernard Catholic Church in Alpena.
He was the dear father of Mark (Martha) of Macomb, and Matthew (Bridget) of Mequon, Wisconsin.
He was the proud grandfather of Nickole DeLoge and of Ryan DeLoge. He also has a brother, Richard, in Davison, Michigan.
Allen lived in Romulus doing tool and die work for 25 years then went to work for American Axle for 15 years living in Sterling Heights.
In 2005 he retired to his beloved north country in Grayling. He was an active member of the Mt. Hope Lutheran Church until sickness and a couple of strokes made that impossible and kept him more home bound, but he still did some hunting from his wheelchair, usually got a deer and a turkey each season.
There will be no viewing per his request, as he will be cremated; but there will be a memorial service at Mt. Hope Lutheran on Monday June 5, 2017, at 11:00 a.m. He asked for no flowers, but, in remembrance, please give any contributions to American Heart, Diabetic Associations, or the church, or a charity of your own choosing in his name.
