Age 80, of Oakland, OR, passed away on Saturday, March 1, 2014. He was born on October 9, 1933 in Mineral, WA, to Rolland Harting and Sally Scalf Harting Romenesko. Allen hunted, tracked and fished while growing up in Mineral, WA. He worked for Southern Log Scaling Bureau for 33 years, retiring in 1997 at age 64. His favorite places to camp or hunt were Fish Creek Valley, Hart, Steens Mountains, Kelsey Valley, and Jackson Creek. Allen went to Klamath Marsh for goose hunting. We have so many memories of going with him. He loved to hunt ducks, quail, geese, pigeons, pheasant and grouse, deer and elk. We still have his three trophy blacktail bucks and the once in a lifetime trophy bighorn sheep off Hart Mountain. Allen served in the US Army from April 15, 1953 in the Korean War, involved with troop transport to and from the infamous Pork Chop Hill. He was honorably discharged on April 18, 1955. He is survived by his wife of 49 years, Mary; son, Glenn (Connie) Harting; daughters, Renee (Bud) Dickey and Roxanne Hollands; sister, Jean Miller of Spanaway, WA; grandchildren: Matthew and Karlee Harting, Bryce Dickey, Charles and Dorothy Hollands; and nieces and nephews; life time hunting partner, Charles Goe. Allen is preceded in death by his parents, Rolland and Sally Scalf Harting Romenesko. A celebration of life will be held later this summer up the North Umpqua. Wilson’s Chapel of The Roses handled the cremations, Ashes to be spread at Hart Mountain.
