Obituary

Hugh Brian Allen
July 3, 1932-February 18, 2021
Born in Donecloney, Northern Ireland
Resided in Simsbury, CT


Hugh Brian Allen, 88, of Simsbury, beloved husband of Dorothy Margot (Carnsew) Allen, passed away peacefully on Thursday, February 18, 2021 at St. Francis Hospital in Hartford. Known by family and friends as Brian, he was born July 3, 1932 in Donecloney, Northern Ireland, only son of the late Rev. Hugh Allen and Phyllis (Deale) Allen. Brian was educated at Trinity College, Dublin, where he received a doctorate of medicine in 1959. After working in family practice in various hospitals in Northern Ireland, he became a physician at Cuckfield Hospital in Sussex, England, where he met and married the love of his life, Margot, in 1962. He then joined Bayer Pharmaceuticals as UK Medical Director for 20 years. In 1985 he took the position of Vice President of Bayer US moving with his family to Guilford, CT, where they lived until Brian’s retirement in 1995.Over the following 10 years, Brian enjoyed life on Pine Island, Florida, pursuing his keen interests in classical music, opera, reading, golfing, boating and traveling. Among his favorite destinations was New Zealand, where he spent several wonderful months exploring the country in a camper with Margot at his side. In more recent years, Brian and Margot moved back to Simsbury, Connecticut to be close to family. It was here that Brian joined the Simsbury Farms Golf Club and entered the McLean Village community as an active resident.

In addition to Margot, his devoted wife of almost 59 years, Brian is survived by three loving children: his daughter, Fiona Eytan and her husband Ran of Canton; his sons, Patrick Allen and wife Krista of Canton, and Peter Allen and wife Carla Ross Allen of Brooklyn, NY. He is also survived by his eight grandchildren, Kayla (and husband Dan Dombrowski,) Ryan and Jacob Allen, Ben, Emma, Adam and Tom Eytan and Zoë Ross Allen and two great grandchildren, Dylan and Rilee Dombrowski.

Private burial will be in the Simsbury Cemetery. A memorial service is tentatively planned for late Spring. Please visit his Book of Memories at www.vincentfuneralhome.com for online tributes.

Dear Margot,
I was very sad to read of Brian's passing in the Hartford Courant. You and Brian were my favorite clients. You and he had a very good and meaningful life and have wonderful children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
My thoughts and prayers are with you.
