Mr. Bruce AllenAugust 14, 1961 ~ August 9, 2017 (age 55)
Adams announces the passing of Mr. Bruce Allen, 55, who transitioned on Wednesday, August 9, 2017.
Bruce Robert Allen was born on August 14, 1961 in Ipswich, Queensland, Australia to the late Gordon
George Allen and Linda May Schelbach Allen. Bruce, who was the second child, was confirmed and
baptize in the Lutheran Church, and was educated in the Ipswich, Queensland public school system.
Bruce obtained a Bachelors Degree in Business Accounting from Queensland University in Brisbane,
Australia and was awarded the Duke of Edinburgh's Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards, which were
presented to him by Prince Philip of England, for outstanding achievements as a young adult. He
would later become a member of AICPA (American Institute of Certified Public Accountants) and the
Gerson Leman Group Council.
In 1983, after completing his education, Bruce moved to Melbourne Australia and worked there until
he was offered a job in Hong Kong and relocated there. While in Hong Kong he accepted a job offer
with Winsor Industrial Corporation that gave him the opportunity to move to New York which he did in
1986. While working in New York Bruce applied for a Green Card and shortly after became a citizen of
the United States.
In 2001 Bruce founded and launched Private Label Sourcing, an apparel manufacturing firm; but prior
to his business launch he was President, CEO and CFO of Boulevard Apparel Groups, a subsidiary of
Winsor Industrial Corporation where he started his career.
Bruce was a very kind and giving person; his family and friends were the most important people in his
life. He would travel to Australia to spend time with his family and take them on holidays to Hawaii,
The Great Barrier Reef and the Australia Gold Coast; and he would fly his Mum here to the United
States to visit with him in New York City; and while here in the United States they would visit cities
like L.A., Graceland and Las Vegas, among so many other Cities here in the United States.
Bruce was such a kind and giving person that if he saw someone in need he would do everything in
his power to ensure that their needs were take care of; and his home was always open to his family
and friends, especially at Thanksgiving and Christmas, when he would say, "no one should be alone
on the holidays." To know Bruce was to love him; and so many people did. The world was a better
place with him in it.
Bruce leaves to cherish his memory: A brother, David Allen (*Bernice Allen); a sister, Roxanne Allum
(*Brett Allum); 6 nephews: Matthew, Brendon, Joshua, Nicholas, Jayden and Darryn; 2 God-chlldren's
Leonardo DiMuzio, Mia Walden; a son Stanley Jr., whom he shared with his partner of 24 years
Stanley Melvin Walden Sr., plus many relatives and friend who will miss him dearly.
Arrangements are incomplete.
