Asher Eugene Allen was born March 25, 2011 in Sioux Falls to Denny and Karri (Thunker) Allen. He was baptized on May 22, 2011. He and his family attended Celebration United Methodist Church in Brandon where Asher could be found dancing to the music on any given Sunday morning. He loved his music so much that he figured out how to turn on the family radio and would listen/dance to 96.5 KNWC. Asher was very observant also. He could detect when the TV was being turned on and would come to the room to see if his favorite programs were on. If not, he would resume doing his thing again. He also knew how to turn on the remote for his shows as well. Asher’s routine was to pull up his Husker chair or hop into mom or dad’s lap, watch the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, and wave goodnight to Mickey. When it was time for bed, he would go get his blanket and his “paci” and trudge down the hall to his crib on his own. He was a very good natured boy. He loved to greet his dad at the door every night with a big smile as Denny would come home from work. Asher also liked to play hard. He liked sticks, dirt, and swimming. Sometimes he would get dirty just so he could take a bath. He would run into the bathroom to look at the tub, just to make sure it was there and ready to swim in.
