APPLE VALLEY REVIEW
I like to highlight individuals in our community who, in one way or another, are responsible for the Apple Valley we live in today. One such individual is Dick Allen. Dick is a lesson for all persons facing retirement that life isn’t over for you when you leave your job behind.
Dick did a stint in the Army during the Korean War and then went to work for 3M. He first bought property in Apple Valley in 1958. Dick retired after 40 years with 3M and moved with his wife Shirley to Apple Valley in 1988.
