Allan was born to Irene and Ernest Heggs on Oct. 29, 1939, in Kellerton, Iowa. He graduated from Kellerton High School in 1958 and worked on the family farm until joining the U.S. Air Force. Allan married the love of his life, Janetta Ann Saltzman, on May 6, 1962. They moved to Cedar Rapids in 1965, where he began working at Link-Belt Speeder. He moved to a farm in rural Norway where he farmed and continued to work as a machinist. Other employment included Rockwell Goss and Kinze Manufacturing.
