Blaine Evans Allen, 68, of Haines, died Sept. 24, 2007, at his home.

Blaine was born on March 29, 1939, at Ogden, Utah. He was the son of Louis and Merle Bracken Allen and the fifth of seven children.

He married the love of his life, Ann Searle Allen, on Oct. 13, 1956. Their marriage was later solemnized in the LDS Logan Temple. They were married for 51 wonderful years.

His presence here on Earth will be greatly missed, his family said. Blaine was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

He will be remembered for his love of people, generosity, witty humor and strong dedication to his family. He was also known for his honesty, integrity, sincerity, respect, and fairness with others. He was an outstanding cattleman, rancher, farmer, poet, writer, and a master of helping others to believe in themselves and their dreams.

Blaine touched the lives of many people and all would agree that they are better off due to their association with him. Blaine was a friend to all; he never knew a stranger
