Allan Dale Crisp

WALLAGRASS, Maine — Allan Dale Crisp, age 66, passed away on August 16, 2017 following a battle with chronic illness.

Allan has been described as one-of-a-kind and unforgettable, a strong man with a heart of gold. He always lived life to the fullest and pursued his passions with zest, which led him to many professions. He was proud to serve his country as a combat engineer in Vietnam, where he received his purple heart.

He spent time as a mechanic and a boat builder, a hotel manager and a cattle farmer, a bar manager and a sporting good salesman, to name a few. He received his bachelor’s degree from UMFK and he was passionate about the environment, urging everyone to leave a healthy planet for future generations. Allan’s best quality was the way he helped others grow. He was a strong and nurturing force that encouraged others in their own successes. He could always be counted on for a shoulder to cry on, a pat on the back, and honest words to provide a fresh perspective. He will be greatly missed, but he insisted no one should be sad about his departure.

He leaves behind his wife Christiana Yule, daughters Tessa and Alma Crisp, son Matthew Crisp, sister Geraldine Nunn and brother-in-law Irving Nunn, nieces Katherine Nunn and Elizabeth Dubose, nephew Bryan Liptzin, and a large extended family in North Carolina and across the country. Allan will be greatly missed by many. Please remember his words “Thank you GOD for our lives families and friends protect those who protect and serve U.S.”

Arrangements are in the care of Daigle Funeral Home, Fort Kent.
