Allen B. Babb

Hazelton resident, Allen B. Babb, 58, lost his life Tuesday afternoon, July 25, 2017, in a tragic car accident.  He is survived by his wife, Sheri’ Babb; three daughters:  Manda Sahadi, Adrienne Davis and Mary Dunz; eight grandchildren:  Faina, Ava, Marley, Beau, Jack, Evan, Owen and Ruby and his brother by choice, Darwin Gates.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Bill and Mary Babb.

Allen was born November 20, 1958 in Pontiac, Michigan but was raised primarily in Corwin, Kansas.  He attended Barber County schools and graduated from South Barber High School in 1977.  In 1989 he met the love of his life and two oldest daughters while working in Arkansas.  Shortly after, they welcomed their youngest daughter and completed their family.  Allen and Sheri’, together for 28 years, had a strong marriage built on a foundation of love and faith in the Lord.

Allen recently rededicated his life to God.  He was an active member of the Masons, serving three lodges, Delta #77 of Medicine Lodge, Cosmos #278 of Kiowa and Anthony #300 of Anthony.  As a Mason, he held many positions and he took each role seriously.  He was also a dedicated member of the Kansas Order of the Eastern Star and was currently serving as Worthy Patron of Lorraine Chapter 39 of Medicine Lodge, a role that he delighted in.  Additionally, he found purpose in working with the young men at the Freedom Gates Boys Ranch and helping them develop a relationship with the Lord.  He found great comfort in the congregation of Community Bible Fellowship.  All accomplishments aside, being a loving husband, father and Popo was the greatest joy of his life.

Allen never met a stranger and touched the lives of anyone who knew him because of the lasting impression he made and his unique sense of humor. His loss impacted the entire community and he will be greatly missed.

A Celebration of Life Service for Allen was held on Saturday, July 29, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. at Community Bible Fellowship in Medicine Lodge, Kansas.
