Daniel R. Allen Obituary

"NAPLES-Daniel R. Allen, 68, of Naples, died Thursday, Feb. 8, 2024 at Mercy Hospital in Portland, surrounded by his family.

He was born on July 17, 1955, in Beverly, MA, a son of Stanley E. and Mary (Horgan) Allen, Jr. He attended local schools, graduating from Hamilton High School.

After high school, Dan enlisted in the US Army and served for three years. Upon his discharge in 1978 he worked as a long-haul truck driver for a few years before settling into work with the US Postal Service serving in Haverhill. While there, he met Dawn Archambault in 1986. They married in 1990 and started their beautiful family.

In 1989, he and Dawn purchased “Cooper’s Anchorage” which is now a longtime thriving marina, Causeway Marina, in the heart of Naples Maine.

Dan has served the local community in various ways over the years including organizing and volunteering for several Naples Winter Carnivals, working on the Naples Bridge Committee and various town boards. He was quite the naples historian, loving to talk and learn about the history of this beautiful place which he has enjoyed since a young child.

He enjoyed motorcycles, snowmobiling, firearms and the love of his dogs over the years. His greatest pleasure however was the company of his family.

Dan is loved by his wife, Dawn of Naples; sons, Daniel R. Allen, Jr. and his wife, Corene of Harrison, Jesse Allen and Savanna Kay of Naples, Zachary Allen and his fiancé, Hailey Engelhardt of Naples; five grandchildren, Chase, Carter, Remi, Capri, Finn (and a 6th on the way, Beau). He was predeceased by his parents; two brothers, Stanley “Mickey” Allen III and Martin Allen.

Memorial visitation will be held from 6-8PM, Thursday, Feb. 15, 2024, at the Hall Funeral Home in Casco. A graveside service with military honors will be held in June with a specific time and date to be announced (which will be followed by a celebration of his life at the marina). Tributes may be shared at"


I have 29 first cousins on the Allen side of my family tree.  Most are older than me, and it is always sad to hear that another Allen cousin has passed away.  It is becoming too common as the years pass by.  Below are some of my favorite photos of Danny and I.  We would visit at his family camp on Crooked River in Casco, and he used to push me around in the wheelbarrow.  The second photo is of Uncle Al (Dan's father and my mother's oldest brother) holding me, and his three sons, my first cousins now all deceased, Danny, Mickey, and Marty.
