Allen, known by many of his friends as “Sam”, was born April 5, 1945 at Taylorville Memorial Hospital, the son of Wilbur and Katherine (Cockrahan) Hubbard, Sr. He worked for Bill Hager, assisting with auctions, yard work, and numerous other jobs until Bill passed into eternity. Allen then continued doing odd jobs, and providing handyman services for others in the community. He resided at Park Glen in Taylorville until 2013, when he moved to Decatur to be closer to his sister, Sharon. Allen lived in Belvedere Centre Plaza for two years, before moving to Hickory Point in Forsyth, where he resided until his death.

He was preceded in death by his parents; great-grandmother, Minnie Spears; grandmother, Mary Cockrahan; aunts, Hattie Duffy and Bea Mitchel; brother, Wilbur Hubbard, Jr.; and nephew, C.J. Hubbard.

Surviving Allen to cherish his memories are his sister, Sharon L.
