Robert A. ‘Allen’ Hess, 57, was Denver Oriole, Sunline Inc. employee, known for his lasagna
Robert A. Hess, a.k.a. “Allen,” 57, of Denver passed away May 13, 2014 at the Ephrata Community Hospital.
Born in Lewisburg, he is the son Helen Smith Hess, Lititz and the late Kenneth G. Hess. He shared 19 wonderful years of marriage with his wife Kimberly Duffy Hess.
A friendly and outgoing person, Allen was a member of the Denver Orioles, Nest 54. He worked in maintenance at the Holiday Inn Express, Rockvale on Route 30 and as an assembler at the former Sunline Inc., Denver.
Allen enjoyed fishing, working on cars, and being outdoors. He spent many days cooking to prepare for Christmas and Easter dinners. His specialty dish was lasagna and there was always a large pan ready for his family when they came for dinners. When he was with his children and grandchildren, you could tell by the smile on his face how special they were to him.
In addition to his wife and mother, Allen will be greatly missed by his children: Michele Hess, Miss.; Gwen Eckert, Lancaster; Robert Allen, Jr., Denver; Carrie Kraft (Michael Barr), Ronks; Kenneth Kraft, Jr. (Brandy), Ronks; grandchildren: Tyler Eckert, Lizzie, Alyssa and Dakota Kraft, Alexzander Kraft- Barr, Hailey Barr; brothers: Jeffrey Hess, Lititz; Benjamin Hess, Ephrata; Steven Hess, Lititz; sisters Christine Hess Harp and Ann Hess McMullen, Tenn.
Services were held May 16 at Richard H. Heisey Funeral Home, Lititz. Interment followed in Middle Creek Brethren Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that contributions be sent to the Richard H. Heisey Funeral Home, 216 S. Broad St., Lititz, PA 17543 to assist with Allen’s funeral expenses.
