From the time he was a young boy who hitchhiked from Santa Ana to fish off the piers in Newport Beach or catch a ride on a half-day boat, life was spent around the ocean.

He became a deckhand and earned his way up to serve as Captain of several Newport-based fishing boats, taking passengers to the best fishing spots off Catalina and San Clemente. Tom even signed on to a Portuguese commercial tuna boat and spent months off of South America, poling giant tuna over his head from the rolling swim step. In later years, Tom continued his sea adventures, taking dives from his own boat and voyaging to Alaska and Mexico and everywhere in between. He was a member of the Avalon Tuna Club, the Balboa Angling Club and the Catalina Conservancy. Tom was a robust, big-hearted man who never met a stranger and was never short of a smile.

He is survived by his wife, Pamela Whitesides Allen, his son, Matt Allen, his brother and sister- in-law, Bob and Eleanor Allen, his sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law, Paula and Pat Nielsen and Terry and Jim Hawley, and by his nieces and nephews, Kathy and Jon Shamrell, Tim and Julie Nielsen, Kristin and Steve Braucht, Kellie and Robert Smith, Kathleen Hawley, Tom Allen, Matt Nielsen, and Luke Hawley.
