Allen ‘Red’ E. Wilson

La Grande



Allen “Red” E. Wilson, 80, of La Grande, died Dec. 20 surrounded by family.

Known as Red, he was born March 8, 1922, in East St. Louis, Ill. Red served for more than five years in the Army Air Corps. He was stationed in Papua New Guinea, the northern Solomon Islands and the Bismarck Archipelago during World War II, where he earned the Asiatic Pacific Medal, the American Defense Service Award, a Good Conduct Medal and a Distinguished Unit Badge with two oak leaf clusters.

After the war, Red met and married Barbara Smith. The two moved to Alaska, where they lived for more than 24 years.

Red loved the outdoors, and was happiest when hunting, fishing or hiking. He and Barb spent many hours hiking in the hills along their property at the foot of Mt. Emily. Red also loved to read nonfiction and to tell war stories with his friends.

Survivors include his wife of 65 years, Barbara; son and daughter-in-law, Randy and Linda Wilson of Scio; daughter and son-in-law, Linda and Don Blazejewski of Oregon City; and seven grandchildren.
