Bankruptcy Judge John Allen

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- Federal Bankruptcy Judge John H. Allen died July 21st from complications of Parkinson's Disease. He was appointed to the Federal bench August 24, 1983 and retired July 15th, less than a week before his death. Allen was known as a hard-working and careful judge, who had an uncanny ability to "sniff out whether a bankrupt debtor was on the level or was hiding things. You'd wonder how he knew and, in hindsight, he was always right. "He had the best nose in the business," said Attorney Vernon Hopkinson. He handled several high-profile cases, including the bankruptcy of Bonneville Pacific, which resulted in six company principals being indicted for fraud.

Allen served in the US Army in Korea and in the US Army Reserve as senior commander over all the Judge Advocate General units in the 96th command. He retired as a Full Colonel in 1991 after 32 years of service. Born August 30, 1930, he married JoAnne Hansen on September 2, 1952 in the Logan Temple and was the father of two children.
