He was my boss, but he treated me like a colleague and a friend. I am forever grateful. He will be missed by thousands of people - he touched many lives. I hope you find comfort in the fact that his influence will go on for generations. My prayers are for you and Tommy and Rachel to find comfort in remembering all the precious times you had together and celebrating a life well lived. I grieve with you. Annette Sheehan"

The Levers Family from St. Charles, IL

"I only had the opportunity to meet Dr. Allison on two occasions. These were occasions the greatly affected my son and our family. My son was a new transfer for the 2019/2020 year to Wild Rose. Dr. Allison met with us and gave us a private tour of the school and playground, and he met with our family at the ice cream social. He left such an impression on me because he took such great care with my son to help him feel less anxious, calm his fears, and made sure that he felt welcome. The transition to our new school has gone very smoothly and my son is thriving...and it all started with the compassion and kindness from Dr. Allison. Our prayers go out to his family, friends and colleagues. I'm very glad that I got to meet him...he will be missed."

"I'm so sorry for your loss of a great father and husband. As one of Rachel's elementary teachers I appreciated Dr. Alison's support as a parent and later when my sister-in-law was a teacher at his school I appreciated his care for her as a new teacher. She told me he was a great principal who supported his teachers and listened to their feedback and concern. I will continue to keep your family in my thoughts."

Jordan Loughran from Batavia , IL

"Mr. Allison always made me laugh every time I came over to hangout with Tommy. One day back in high school we were tearing the living room apart looking for Tommy’s wallet when Mr. Allison explained to him he was going to have to revoke his “man” card because, “A man never loses his wallet”. I remember laughing so hard at that I could barely breathe. To this day I have never lost my wallet and I have Mr. Allison to thank for that and so much more. Much like my wallet all these years I will never forget the good times I had with you Mr. Allison. Sincerely, Jordan Loughran"

The Piloto Family from St. Charles, IL

All the best to you at this difficult time. We will continue to keep your family in our thoughts."

Kim Perkins from Lombard, IL

"Dear Allison family, I had the good fortune to work with Bob in St. Charles Schools. My last few years there overlapped his first years there. Bob was such a pleasure with which to work, and he was widely respected for not only his congenial manner, but also for his love of children, reading, and education. As I look back now over my years in the field of education, I was impressed by and appreciative of Bob's quality work and his passion for it. Take solace in the outpourings of appreciation by his former students and their parents. That speaks volumes to his legacy. Be well, and I wish you peace."
