Charles Harry Allen “Al” Fallstrom was born in Grand Rapids, MI on September 23, 1932, to Hanna and Fritz Fallstrom. Al passed away peacefully at the home he built and raised his family in after a short bout of cancer.
He spent his life journey in the Grand Rapids area where he attended South High School and as a young boy worked at South Field selling concessions during Grand Rapids Chicks baseball games. Later on, Al joined the Army and was stationed in France during the Korean War. Upon Al’s return from overseas he married the love of his life, Wilma and built their home in Lowell where he would go on to raise his children teaching them how to hunt, fish and throw horseshoes. He enjoyed fishing, hunting, camping, gardening, singing, and traveling to Montana, New Jersey, and the U.P. Al, spent his professional career in administration at A.B. Electrolux also known as Kelvinator for 34 years as well as a delivery driver for D & W Floral. Those that knew Al would say that he was funny and always had a joke to share, they would also say that he was kind and a no-frills kind of guy. But if you asked his bride, she would certainly tell you he was a fox!
Allen was preceded in death by his parents; brother, Roland; twin sisters, Rheta and Ruby; as well as his daughter, Julie Cinco.
Allen is survived by his loving bride of 65 years, Billie. He is also survived by his children, Jeff Fallstrom (Nettie), Joseph Fallstrom and Jeni Buck all of Lowell; grandchildren, Melaina, Skyler (Sarah), Brittney (Chris), Dallas, Dillon (Sarah), Haley (Andre), Hanna (Steven), Levi and Katie; two great grandsons, Kinser and Lane; and several special loved ones that called him Grandpa.
