Stephen W. Allen, 78, of Woolwich died peacefully Jan. 16, 2019 at Mid Coast Hospital in Brunswick.
He was born in Bath on Aug. 9, 1940, the son of Arthur H. and Lois E. (Reed) Allen. He attended a one room schoolhouse in Days Ferry, then Woolwich Central School and graduated from Morse High School class of 1958.

Stephen worked at Bath Iron Works as a pipefitter, M&R Giles in Edgecomb, and Dick Holbrook and Sons Excavation in Woolwich.
Stephen loved telling stories of his life, of which he had many. He was a kind man who would give the shirt off his back to help others.He could do, build, make or fix anything. Stephen built a beautiful log cabin and a gorgeous stone chimney, using logs and stones from his own land, in which he and Peggy lived in after his retirement.
Stephen was predeceased by his parents, his brother David, and his niece Paula Hersom.
Stephen is survived by his wife of 58 years, Peggy; their daughter, Stephanie of Woolwich; his three grandchildren, Chelsea, Emily and her husband Justin, Stephen and his girlfriend Mina; two great-granddaughters, Sophia and Sydney; his nephew and nieces, Allen, Susan, Julie and their families, dear friends Henry, Betsey, Hank, and his sister and brother-in-law.
