It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of Allan Francis Legg, 89, on January 13, 2024 at Reid Hospice with family at his side. He will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.

Allan was born in Indianapolis on July 5,1934 and graduated from George Washington High School where he was known as “The Voice” for his exceptional singing talent. He attended Butler University and studied music.

Allan married the love of his life, Carol Jean Hodges, and they remained married 53 years until her passing. Allan and Carol enjoyed traveling throughout the country and abroad to Mexico, Canada and Italy. He proudly served in the US Army and had a 50 year career in the HVAC business as a sales engineer primarily with Richmond Supply/Kiefaber. He also taught HVAC at Ivy Tech for many years.

Allan deeply loved his family and faith in Jesus Christ. He loved listening to jazz music and spending time with his grandchildren. In his last 16 years, he actively served in his church and the community. Allan facilitated a grief support group for First United Methodist Church, served on the boards of the Widowed Persons Support Group and the Singles Interaction Group, and volunteered at Reid Hospital. He could always be found singing in his church choir on Sunday and dancing the night away at Interaction on Friday nights.

Allan was preceded in death by his parents Francis and Ruth (Stovall) Legg, his brother Paul Legg, his wife Carol (Hodges) Legg, and precious granddaughter Carolyn Legg.

Allan is survived by his four children, Stephanie (John) Long, Bradley (Tralise) Legg, Bill (Donna) Legg and Chris (Amy) Legg; grandchildren Cory Legg, Brian (Monica) Legg, Allison (Brian) Fornefeld, and Emily Legg; sisters Janet Jackson and Sharon (Bob) Sherman, and many step grandchildren, step great grandchildren as well as many nieces and nephews.
