Allan P. King Jr., Principal, Allan King and Friends
July 30, 1941 - March 1, 2012
Allan King passed away at age 70 at his residence in Reno, Nevada. He is survived by his children Gregory King of Reno, Nevada, Jeffrey King of Roseville, California, and Lorrie Adams (Jerry) of Reno, Nevada; step-children Christopher Blair of Manhattan, Nevada, and Lise Crittenden (Scott) of Irmo, South Carolina; a sister, Elizabeth King of Carson City, Nevada and her son Scott King; one grandchild, Will Crittenden; and his beloved pet Zachary. He was preceded in death by his wife Wendy and parents Allan Sr. and Janie King.
Allan was in the foodservice industry for over 40 years. He began his career in the 1960's as a draftsman for a restaurant supply house and went on to found his design consulting firm, Allan King and Friends, in 1979. He was a member of FCSI for many years and had earned the CFSP designation from NAFEM. His clients included many of the major hotel-casinos in Nevada, as well as numerous correctional facilities, schools, hospitals, convention centers, and restaurants. Among the honors he received were Restaurant Hospitality Magazine's "Excellence in Kitchen Design" award for Steven Lake Tahoe restaurant, Incline Village, Nevada and a National Historic Preservation award for his work for the Eureka Opera House in Eureka, Nevada. Allan had been in poor health in recent years and was semi-retired at the time of his death. He will be interred in the Rose Garden at Mountain View Cemetery in Reno, Nevada. There will be no services. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to the FCSI Educational Foundation, your local animal shelter, or other favorite charity.
