David "Norman" Allred, Sr. 1935- 2009

My father in law was a wonderful man. He was quiet,kind,friendly,artistic, extremely helpful, worked hard,smooth dancer, loved to hunt and fish,endured pain without complaint, great listener,a tease and loved his family as well as the gospel.

Norman and Sandy were together for almost 53 years and I mean together. This picture was taken out on a boat tour of Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.

Grandpa love to help even combing Anna's tangles out before church.


Grandpa Norman love to play and Molly even got Grandma to come play frisbee. See what I mean about always being together. :-)

Ok I had to put these in here because Norman loved to hunt, we saw these deer when we were in Nauvoo, Illinois. The Mississippi river is right behind this group of trees. Good thing he didn't have his gun with him that day.

Norman was a very spiritual man. He loved our Savior and was very knowledgeable of the scriptures. He was a great teacher.

He enjoyed traveling but more important he loved being with his grandkids. He is probably the most playful grandpa I know. Actually I don't know if he really enjoyed traveling, I think it was more of just being with his extended family,

Anna loves her huggy grandpa. He always had a hug for everyone.
One of the kindest things anyone has ever said to me was by my father in law who after hugging me goodbye when I was dropping my in laws off at the airport said, "You are a good mother, love you hon"

He will be greatly missed.
My son also wrote a lovely tribute. You can find it here.

  1. Thanks for your kind words Tami.

    Landon made a very insightful comment that we couldn't imagine any family gathering without Grandpa. Certainly he made each of us feel cherished. His love for his family energized him. Gratefully our memories of him will continue to be a part of our gatherings and his influence will continue to add to the goodness of our own lives.

  8. Hey! Do you know if they make any plugins to
    protect against hackers? I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on.

    Any tips?

  11. An interesting discussion is worth comment. I believe
    that you should write more on this subject matter, it might not be a taboo subject
    but generally people don't talk about these issues. To the next! Best wishes!!

  12. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is important and all.

    However imagine if you added some great photos or video clips to give your
    posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with images
    and videos, this blog could definitely be one of the best in
    its niche. Amazing blog!
