Leland P. “Punky” Allison, age 69, of Wooster, was called home to be with the lord on Wednesday, October 2nd, 2019.

He was born on May 16, 1950 in Wooster to Leland Carl and Ruth "Keek" (DiOrio) Allison and had been a Shreve and Wooster resident for all of his life.

Punky leaves behind his beloved wife Lourene M. "Rene" (Hartsoe) Allison whom he married on May 12, 2007; his son, Leland “Hoss” Allison and his wife Sharon; his grandchildren, Dylan, Nik, & Emily; and his extended family, Herb (Carrie) Hartsoe and family, Andy (Chris) Hartsoe and family.

Punky was a true patriot and had attended New Hope Church in Wooster. He was previously an active member of the Lamplighters Club for many years.

He enjoyed traveling, dancing, karaoke, riding his motorcycle and every so often enjoyed smoking a good cigar. Punky had a quick wit, an infectious smile, and a kind and compassionate spirit.

We are very sorry to hear of Punky's passing. As we all get older we have a tendency to look back at some of the more memorable people we have met along the way. Punky was truly a memorable individual. We met Punky through Rene when they were both entering a new chapter in their lives. We remember how happy they both were enjoying each other. They talked about their families, the good times they all had, the many activities they attended including all the sporting events the grandkids had participated in. On a more personal note for Claudine and I, we always looked forward to our trips down to Hog Heaven to have some of their BBQ pulled pork sandwiches with Rene and Punky. We would have a beer or 2 and inevitably we would all share in one the Hog Logs for dessert. Afterwards we would head back to Rene and Punky's to enjoy a good cigar out back in the 'smoke house'. Rene, we will always remember the good times we had with you and Punky! Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your families.
Claudine and Dave Todoran

Punky was one of those people you never forget. He had the most beautiful smile,was funny, courageous, and loved his family and his Lord with all of his big heart. I had the honor of being one of the nurses to care for him many years ago. Prayers of comfort to his family.

So sorry to hear this news about my high school classmate 1968. Punky had such a good heart, a tremendous smile and always made any time a good time. My condolences to his family and friends.

When we’d walk down the halls of THS and see Punky you couldn’t help but smile. He was always a good friend and that smile was infectious! RIP Punky. Class of 68 and I will miss you! ❤️ Condolences to the family.

My condolences to Punky's family. I had known Punky for a very long time, meeting him through mutual friends in the late 60s. Although I only saw him a few times over the years, he could make it seem like it was just yesterday that we spoke. One of the nicest, most caring people I have ever known. Truly one of a kind.
