Allen C. Schwab passed away on May 6, 2023. Allen was born in Manhattan on January 4, 1952, to Eleanor Regel Schwab and William L. Schwab. He grew up in Plandom Estates, New York, with a love of nature and the outdoors from an early age.

He is a graduate of Paul D. Schreiber High School in Port Washington, NY and a graduate of Villanova University’s School of Business.

After college, Allen worked with his father in concept sales. He then spent most of his career as a technician at Verizon (and its predecessor) in Manhattan, retiring in 2010 after 32 years with the company.

Allen loved Long Island’s North Fork and spent many summers there as a child. At age 27, Allen and his brother bought a bungalow in East Marion, New York, after seeing the ad in a newspaper. Allen was happiest in the “East”.

After retirement, he stayed active by focusing on his hobbies, which included walking, golfing, following the Yankees, volunteering with the INN Soup Kitchen, and working part-time at the pool and ice rink in the Great Neck Park area for 12 years. On the ice, he proudly pilots the Zamboni.

Most of all, he loves spending time with family and friends.

He will be remembered for his kind heart, twinkling blue eyes and concern for all people and places he encountered.

Allen’s survivors include his wife, Cheryl; his daughter, Madeleine; his brother, Richard (Sharon); his nephew, Taylor; and many friends at various stages of his life.

The Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, September 23rd at 2pm at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Shelter Rock, 48 Shelter Rock Road, Manhasset, NY 11030.

Contributions in memory of Allen may be donated to the Esophageal Cancer Action Network (ECAN) or the Mary Brennan INN Soup Kitchen.
