He was born June 26, 1921 in Honolulu, Territory of Hawaii, to parents Wah Jim and Sau Han (Chun) Pang. He attended Likelike Elementary, Central Intermediate and McKinley High school in Honolulu. Allen was attending University of Hawaii when Pearl Harbor was attacked and volunteered for duty on the afternoon of Dec 7, 1941.

After his service, he attended and graduated from the University of Iowa. He then began a dental graduate program at Loyola University in Chicago and went to the University of Illinois where he earned a postgraduate degree in pediatric dentistry. While in school at Loyola, he met Catherine A. Parchem, while dating her nursing class alphabetically. She was a student nurse at Wesley Memorial at the time. The two married on September 17, 1949 and moved to Honolulu for a short period. In 1951, they returned to the mainland and settled in Rockford because Catherine missed the change of seasons. The couple enjoyed more than 67 years together traveling, giving back to the community, and celebrating with friends and family. Allen practiced pediatric dentistry in Rockford from 1951 to 1989. After retirement, he did volunteer dentistry work at Crusader Clinic. Allen loved parties with family and friends, gardening, golf, watching sports (particular the Hawkeyes), gin rummy and fishing. He frequently fished in Northern Canada and his favorite fishing trip was to the opening of Great Bear Lake, when the flight attendants thought he was a Playboy photographer instead of a fisherman and gave him special treatment. Allen is survived by his wife Catherine (Kay), daughters Susan (Doug) Hughes, Laura (William) Wheeler, Sarah (Bruce) Munies and grandchildren Christian Kuhn, Ben Hughes, Meaghan Hughes, Jake Wheeler, and many cousins, nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by Allen and Kay's beloved son Steven, his parents and brothers James, Richard, Albert, and too many beloved friends.

Allen was also a member of Rotary Club and former member of Knight Templar. He served as treasurer, secretary, vice-president and president of both the Dental Society of the University Club. Allen was the first Asian to be elected as Potentate of the Shrine Temple and was awarded the Forrest Riordan Distinguished Humanitarian Award for Excellence in Medical Service in 2006.
