Michael Allen was born to David and Connie (Houk) Lewis on June 7, 1966, in Iowa City. He was a roofer by trade who enjoyed life outdoors. Camping and fishing for catfish or trout, especially at Bailey's Ford in Manchester, were favorite pastimes. But he loved telling stories and making people laugh.
He was preceded in death by his parents.
