He was born July 12, 1936 in Auglaize County, Ohio to the late Vilas Ray and Rosaline Catherine Jacobs Whetstone. On July 27, 1956 he married Elsie Nell Swartz who survives in New Hampshire.

Mr. Whetstone was raised on the Whetstone dairy farm which was established in the 1790s. He then enlisted into the U.S. Army at the end of the Korean conflict and started working as a welder at Westinghouse Corporation where he retired after 30 years. Studying the Bible and knowing God was very important to Allen. He had been a lay leader with the Methodist conference and was a member of the Waynesfield Baptist Church.

He was preceded in death by a step grandchild, a great grandchild, a brother – Melvin Whetstone, and 2 sisters – Janet Marie Whetstone and Marilyn Sue Whetstone.

Funeral services will begin 11:00 a.m., Saturday, February 9, 2019 at Waynesfield Baptist Church. Rev. Don Smith will officiate. Burial will follow in Fairmount Cemetery, near Uniopolis, where military rites will be observed.

I am so very sorry Elsie and Family, that I will not be able to come today or tomorrow. Got hit with a nasty sinus infection Tuesday and still running temp. That's small potatoes to what you've just been through, however. Was so looking forward to seeing all your family again. Please know that you are in my prayers and I'll be in touch with you later. Love,
