Allen "Tubby" was born on July 17, 1924 in Cedarburg, to the late Wilmer and Annella (nee Vollmar) Boerner. He was raised and lived all his life in Cedarburg, a city and people that have always had a special place in his heart. Allenís family has a rich past dating back to the founding families of Cedarburg.
Allen was a star player during his years in Cedarburg High School athletics. In 1943, Allen felt a call to duty during World War II and enlisted in the U.S. Navy. He served as a motor machinistís mate 1st class on an LCT in Squadron 24 of the 7th Amphibious Forces until his honorable discharge in 1946. On Jan. 20, 1951, he married Marcele "Marcy" (nee Jost) at St. Francis Borgia Catholic Church in Cedarburg.
Shortly after his return to Cedarburg, Allen began to work in the construction trades as a mason and eventually became a jobsite superintendent. He worked for many years with E.H. Moldenhauer & Sons and it is said that Allen either built or worked on many of the buildings in Cedarburg and the surrounding area.
Allen enjoyed spending time with his family and friends while watching or playing football, basketball, baseball, golf, bowling and "pool," as well as listening to the many birds in his backyard. Allen also enjoyed spending time with his "old timers" and many friends at the Cedarburg Fire House.
In 1952, Allen joined the Cedarburg Fire Department where he was a member for over 54 years. Allen was also a member of the American Legion Peter Wollner Post 288 in Cedarburg.
Allen was a wonderful husband, father and grandfather, and demonstrated to all his children and grandchildren the importance of honesty, integrity and community service. He leaves behind a wonderful legacy and he will be truly missed by many family, friends and relatives.
