In Loving Memory…
Dr. Alan A. Allmon
Alan Arthur Allmon passed away on August 29, 2021 at University Hospital surrounded by his family. He was born January 26, 1946 in Canton, Ohio to the late Dr. Edward and Juanita Allmon. Alan graduated from Glenwood High School in Canton, Ohio and Bowling Green State University. While at Bowling Green, he met the love of his life, Linda Lee Leidy. They were married on Sept. 9, 1967, and the “plan” was for Linda to teach while Alan attended the Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine in Kirksville, Missouri. However, God’s plan was to bless them with three children before he finished his internship! Alan graduated from KCOM in 1972 and enlisted in the Army where he would complete his internship at William Beaumont Army Hospital in El Paso, Texas. In 1973, he became a General Medical Officer at Ft. Campbell, Kentucky with the 101st Airborne Division. In 1975, he moved his family to Sedalia where he opened his Family Practice and cared for his patients for 37 years until his retirement in 2012. In 2013, he became a Wound Care Doctor at the Bothwell Wound Center and continued there until his death.
Alan had a great love for Christ and for people, which led him to medical missions. He traveled to Peru, Ecuador, Haiti, and Belarus for a total of 15 medical mission trips.
Throughout his life, Alan passionately pursued various interests: hunting, golfing, tennis, snow skiing, dog training, playing piano and guitar, coaching, running the sound board for his church, exercising, and spending time on his farm. He put 100% into whatever he did and loved friendly competition.
Alan will be remembered for his generous, loving and helpful nature. He is survived by his wife of 54 years, Linda; his children Annette Jones (Brent) of Carthage, MO, Andy Allmon (Ana) of Miami, FL, Allison Kempton (Brody) of Sedalia, Adam Allmon (Michelle) of Overland Park, KS; 8 grandchildren: Grant and Jake Jones, Alec and Andrea Allmon, Meredith and Lydia Tester, and Zane and Lyndon Allmon; his sister Anita Thomas (Richard) of Ohio.
The family will receive friends on Friday, September 3 from 1:00 – 3:00 pm at First United Methodist Church Celebration Center. The funeral service will follow at 3:00 pm.
In honor of Alan’s medical mission trip he had planned for October to Haiti, memorials are suggested to Strong Tower Haiti Orphanage or First United Methodist Church in lieu of flowers. Memorials and funeral arrangements are under the direction of Heckart Funeral Home, P.O. Box 434, Sedalia, MO 65302.
