Allen Howard Stowe

Vero Beach, Fla. — Allen Howard Stowe, age 76, of Vero Beach and Normandy Beach, N.J., died Monday, Aug. 5, 2013, in Vero Beach from complications related to pancreatic cancer. Mr. Stowe (aka Tuff) was born July 31, 1937, in Oak Park, Ill., to William P. and Darleen A. Stowe.

Mr. Stowe (aka Alio) was a graduate of The Kent School, Class of 1956, Dartmouth College, Class of 1960, The Amos Tuck Business School, Class of 1961, and The University of Virginia Law School, class of 1964. He used this educational foundation to practice law, establish and manage companies, and to successfully make his way in the world. However, in his own words, his most direct purpose was “to care for his loved ones in the best possible way while enjoying life responsibly.” By all accounts, he achieved this goal.

Mr. Stowe (aka Tuffy) was renowned for his unique ability to seamlessly intertwine disparate groups of people, whether they were from Bronxville, Ridgewood, Princeton, Hanover, Normandy or Vero Beach into a cohesive band of revelers. His leadership in this area will be sorely missed.

Mr. Stowe (aka Dad) is survived by his wife, Wendy; his six children: Christopher Stowe of Lyme, N.H., Denby Coyle of Lyme, Jonathan Stowe of Pennington, N.J., Marcy Kearny of Madison, N.J., Laurie Fusco of Essex Fells, N.J., and Chris Gallup of Marblehead, Mass. and their spouses, Robert Coyle, Barbara Stowe, Jim Kearney, Tom Fusco and Marci Gallup; sixteen grandchildren; three siblings and a legion of friends.

A celebratory memorial service will be held on Friday, Oct. 4 at 3:30 p.m. in Rollins Chapel at Dartmouth College in Hanover, N.H. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make a donation in memory of Allen H. Stowe to VNA Hospice House, 901 37th Street, Vero Beach, FL 32960.
