He was a business teacher most of his working years. He began his career in Illinois at Gem City College in Quincy and later at Clayton Community School in Clayton. Later, he worked in Iowa at the Waco Community School and Centerville Community School in Centerville where he worked for 30 years.
Allen loved the outdoors and hunted turkey and deer. He enjoyed taking care of his lawn and working on his acreage where he planted and tended to hundreds of trees. Most of all, he was a devoted husband, father and grandfather who loved nothing more than spending time with family and he especially enjoyed following all the sporting activities of his sons and grandchildren.
Allen is survived by his wife, Janice Shahan; sons, Jeff Shahan and Greg (Melissa) Shahan all of Winterset; and four grandchildren, Allen, Erika, Taylor and Molly Shahan.

I am so sorry to hear that Buster passed away this morning, but thank God that he is no longer suffering. I know the heartache you all are feeling, and I share it with you. He was without a doubt the kindest, most loving uncle a gal could ever have, and he always gave such wonderful hugs. Keep in touch and let me know if I can do anything to ease your pain. I love you all.
