G. Allan Trego
On April 8th, 2016 at 11:58 pm, after an evening surrounded by his loving family at Riddle Memorial Hospital in Media, PA, Allan was peacefully escorted by angels into the presence of his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. His wife and oldest grandson were privileged to be present for his home going. Allan was 79 years old.
Allan, met Rita G. (Nicholson) Trego at work and they were married in 1957. He was born on October 20, 1936 in Martins Corner, Chester County, Pa, on Uncle Lew’s farm. He was the 5th of 9 children born to the late Mae Isabelle (Pfitzenmeyer) and Samuel Leonard Trego of Glenmoore, PA.
Allan grew up in Honey Brook, PA on the family farm. When he was not working on the farm, he enjoyed spending time swimming while trying to avoid the snapping turtles that lived in the pond, playing baseball and fishing. Sometimes, instead of avoiding the snapping turtle, they would catch one and have Snapper Soup with roasted corn on the cob. He, fondly remembered gathering branches and twigs to roast hot dogs and marshmallows over an open fire.
Allan graduated from Downingtown High School in 1955. He loved playing softball and in his early adult life spent time playing “Donkey baseball.” He was an awesome pitcher which earned him the name “Awesome Al.” He loved worshiping God and spending time with his brothers and sisters in Christ. He prepared many meals and served his church body as a youth leader. He was the BBQ King at Rita’s family reunions. Everyone enjoyed being around him and every person who interacted with him had a special place in his life. These special relationships earned him many names such as Mr. T, Al, Allan, Mr. Trego, Uncle Al, Grandpop, Young’in, Pop Pop, Poppy and G-Poppy. During any interaction with him, he would make you feel like the most important part of his world. He loved and cherished everyone he knew and in turn everyone loved and cherished him. He will be missed by many, but most especially his wife, children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.
Allan worked hard at Reynold’s Springs and Reynold’s Metal of Chester, Pa at “Jerry’s Place” in Boothwyn Pa and at Marcus Hook Hardware, Marcus Hook, PA.
He is survived by his wife Rita and daughters, Tina (Scott) Hall of Paradise, PA and Judi (Ron) Hall of Pennsdale, PA. Nine grandchildren, John, Kevin, Stephanie, Darrell and Elizabeth, Nathan, Rebekah, Daniel and Joshua. Six great-grandchildren, Gavin, Jessica, Katie, Juli, Brayden and Oliver. All of which he dearly loved.
Also surviving Allan, are his siblings, Harold Trego of Denver, PA, Janet Slovinac of Mechanicsburg, PA, Betty Snyder of Coatesville, PA and James Trego of Glenmoore, PA.

To the Trego family, I'm so sorry for your loss. Please take comfort in knowing that soon we will be able to welcome back our loved ones. This promise is found in God's word the bible. John 5:28,29"Do not be amazed at this for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tomb will hear his voice and come out..." May your family find hope and comfort in this scripture. Be assured that you all will be in my prayers.

May Allan's loving family and friends find comfort from God's word at Revelation 21:3, 4; With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

Al was a great friend and one of God's great servants. Today, I saw him, in my minds eye, sitting in the foyer in his favorite spot at church securing the church against illegal activity and greeting all who pass by. I will miss him and his great smile. And the funny things he said. Looking forward to being reunited with that great pitcher in Heaven. Rita and family our prayers and condolences are with you. Ralph and Nancy Hanby

I miss Uncle Al so much. I will especially miss his church work day breakfasts. He was so faithful behind the scenes at church. I know I will see him in Heaven because of his faith in Jesus Christ.
