Walter R. Allen Jr, 82, of South Burlington passed away on June 29, 2020 at University of Vermont

Medical Center in Burlington, VT after a sudden illness. Born November 29, 1937 in Orange, N.J., he grew up in East Orange, N.J. until he attended Lehigh University where he obtained a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering degree, majoring in structures. Walter had four P.E. licenses: PA, OH, WV and VT.

While working through college, he contributed to the development of EPDM synthetic rubber at Esso Research & Engineering. Work that used his professional skills included design of foundations and steel structure at M.W. Kellogg Co., and Research Cottrell in pollution control. The balance of his career was in project management and design-build projects for construction companies until he retired from Stewart Construction Inc. of Essex Junction, VT.

Walter is survived by his son, Walter III, daughter Nicole, his brother Richard Allen, a sister Lois Allen Edson, three grandchildren, three nephews, four nieces, 18 grand nieces/nephews, a great grand nephew, and three great grand nieces.

Walter’s interests included fishing and guiding in Ontario for 65 years, NCAA wrestling, college and NFL football, and baseball.

Final arrangements will be by his family, with burial at Cedar Ridge Cemetery in Blairstown, N.J.

Barry Corson and Walter were friends since at least college at Lehigh. They ran track together and were both engineering majors. Walter was Dad's Best Man in his marriage (1960). I'm going to try and find some photos for you. Walter called Dad every week for years keeping Dad entertained and socially involved. We are so sorry to hear about Walter's death, we all remember him fondly. Dad greatly misses his phone calls that included lots of conversation about sports and family. Hugs to all of you, Barry & children (Laura, Cara & Jeffrey)

Thank you Corson family. He talked about you all so fondly for many years and I know he would have appreciated your note. All the best, Nicole

To Randy and Nicole,
I am deeply sadden to learn of your Dad's death. Walt worked for me years ago in Martins Ferry. We have called each other many times over the years. Many conversations were of you two, about your families, your careers and of course the lake. He spoke about his struggles to transfer the cabin to you two. Not being computer savvy, and his phone was disconnected, I typed in his name and his obituary popped up. It saddened me deeply. I will forever miss our conversations. My condolences to you and your families.

Thank you Roger. We spoke on the phone of course and I just realized I didn't respond to this note but wanted to tell you how much I appreciate your sentiments. He will be missed.

Walter has been a part of my cottage life since I can remember. Gertrude was our first Allen neighbor on the lake, and then Walter and his wonderful family. This is the first summer without Walter and I miss him. His personality is still here though ... in the fishing stories, the "history of the lake" stories, and the family stories. No one can tell them like he can, and I will always have a special spot in my heart for him, and I will not watch a college game, a fish jump in the water, or a fishing boat on the lake without thinking of him.

Nicole Allen Posted at 08:01pm

Some of my best memories will always center around bullheading in Deyo’s bay and the old stories of times best. Thank you Susan.

where to start? 5 years old and seeing Gertrude in a boat powering a 9.9 towards KOA in the rain for groceries on Desert Lake. Salt of the earth folks. Walt was everybody's friend. Loved to talk Lehigh sports and....well any sports really. I grew up with Nicole and Randy at Desert lake and they are all part of my childhood memories. Our kids are starting to become friends now. Every year, i'd walk over to see Walt and have a beer or 2. We'd talk about the lake, sports and collecting things. Cherished those times - although now realizing how special they were. Our families are deeply interconnected. Will miss him and his booming laugh. Rest well sir. The Mills Family, Syracuse.
