Following his military career he worked at Artistic in Altoona. He loved to go hunting, fishing bird watching, camping and collecting coins.

Preceding him in death were his parents, his wife in 2005 a sister, Betty Swihart; and three brothers, Jack Allfree, Kenneth Allfree and Bob Allfree.
Loved our talks, when we had them, as he was about as wild a driver when younger as I was. We would sit and swap stories about some of our driving (feats?) and have a heck of a good laugh about them.
I am sorry to hear about Bills' passing. I worked with him for many years at Artistic and he was always kind to me. He went to school with my mom and that was a common thread we shared which lead to conversations outside of work. Praying for peace and comfort during this difficult time.
