Allen F. Ketterling

Allen F. Ketterling, "Hoss", was born June 2, 1934, to Sam and Mattie Ketterling in Ekle, Colorado. Due to his mother's health, he was raised by his grandparents, Bert and Vinnie Starling.

He passed away in his sleep on Tuesday, February 20, 2024, at the age of 89. 

On June 5, 1955, he married Jane Harling and two children were born to this union, Terry and Debra. They later divorced.

In 1960, Al built a pipe laying machine that was used in oil fields where he was foreman at that time. In 1986, he converted the pipe laying machine to a tire cutting machine, which he used at the Campbell County Landfill.

Allen did many jobs in his life: railroad, oilfield, paper factory and plumbing. He was an honest, caring, generous man.

On April 11, 2005, he married Dororthy Neugebauer in Moorcroft, Wyoming. He enjoyed collecting coins and having coffee with his friends and pulling tricks on family and friends.
