He attended Santana High School in Santee, California and graduated in 1979. Joe went on to fearlessly serve his country for 20 years in the United States Navy where he would be stationed across the world bringing vital communications to service members. After retirement, Joe was an employee with SAIC for 16 years and he spent the rest of his career as a civilian and government contractor ensuring the radio and communication lines were loud and clear aboard US Navy ships. Joe was a protector, hero and the universal strength of his family. He brought endless support, love and joy to the lives of all he encountered. Joe was hardworking, loving, charismatic and a man who would do anything for anyone. He was selfless and put smiles on everyone’s faces.

Joe was preceded in death by his father, Joseph Edward Allen II, brother, Darren Todd Allen, his grandparents, Hillard and Alberta Moore, uncles, Alvin Moore, Hillard Moore, Kenny Moore.

A private family service will be Monday, May 11, 2020 at The Funeral Chapel of Powell and Deckard, in Bloomington.
