Gregory D. Allen, aged 51, of Arnold, passed away on November 26, 2023 at Great Plains Health in North Platte. He was born on July 12, 1972, to Arleata Joan and Harold Duane Allen in Salina, Kansas. He graduated from Cameron High School in 1991 in Cameron, Missouri.

On September 9, 1995, Greg married Rebecca (Lowrey) Chessmore. To this marriage, six children were born: Brittanya, Geoffery, Brooklynn, Gillian, Brenden and Gwendolen Allen, giving Greg’s oldest son, Dakota, six younger siblings. The couple divorced in October 2012.

During his life, Greg joined the military and moved from Missouri and Nebraska numerous times. He worked many jobs and claimed the title “jack of all trades”, however, the most memorable job was working for his grandfather, Wilbur and Uncle Steve buying used Levi jeans.   Greg enjoyed fishing and camping with his children. He also enjoyed the holidays with his children, his favorite being Halloween, the same as his mother's.  He was always willing to go out of his way to help friends and family as much as he could. If you needed a place to sleep or eat, he would happily open his door to you.

Greg is preceded in death by his parents; son, Geoffery; sister, Trina; two uncles; his paternal and maternal grandparents; and two cousins.

Those left to cherish his memory are his children, Dakota Turner of Arnold, Brittanya Allen of North Platte, Brooklynn Allen of North Platte, Gillian (Brady) Filyaw of North Platte, Brenden Allen of Phoenix, AZ, and Gwendolen Allen of North Platte; granddaughters, Jasmine, Lyla, Maxine, Bonnie, Leola; two granddaughters on the way, Abigail coming in January, and a baby girl coming in April; grandsons, Lee, Greyson, Blake, and Wyatt; aunts, and many cousins.
