Allen Edward Triplett, passed away peacefully at the age of 67, on Tuesday, April 18, 2023, at Silver Cross Hospital in New Lenox, surrounded by the love of the family.

He was a graduate of Tinley Park High School and received his Associate's Degree from Harper College in Palatine, IL. Allen retired after over 40 dedicated years as an Operations Manager.

Allen had a passion for all sports. He enjoyed attending numerous Indy 500 races throughout the years, religiously watching the Kentucky Derby and the Masters tournament, and cheering on the Chicago White Sox.
