Allen M. Lokken was born on January 27, 1932, at home on the family farm near Russell, North Dakota. Allen learned the gospel of Jesus Christ, family closeness, loyalty, love, work ethic, and nurture from his parents, Archie and Alice Lokken. Allen peacefully departed this life on October 29, 2021.
After finishing school and helping the family with farming, Allen was extremely proud to serve his country in the United States Army. He was stationed at Ft. Leonard Wood, Missouri with the Sixth Armored Division during the Korean War. After his honorable military service, Allen worked for Leef Brothers in Fargo, North Dakota. He was recognized with a number of awards and appreciation for his years of service and dedication.
He was pleased to retire to sunny Phoenix, Arizona where he enjoyed volunteering with the Mesa Senior Center, time with family in the area, and travel. Allen was adventurous and had a life long passion for travel, enjoying trips to many special locations throughout the United States, with several return visits to California and Hawaii.
Allen treasured his family and eventually moved to Litchfield, Minnesota to live near his sister and extended family. Allen leaves to cherish special memories: his loving sisters and brothers-in-law Phyllis and Alva Larson, Ardis and Glen Fleming, and Gail Coulthart; the Kersten family; many cousins; nieces; nephews; great nieces and nephews; and friends.
A private memorial service will be held at Johnson-Hagglund Funeral Home followed by interment at Fort Snelling National Cemetery.
