Allen L. Salo
EASTON, ME – Allen L. Salo, 57, passed away on Friday, November 20, 2020, at his home in Easton.
He was born on January 27, 1963, in Minot, North Dakota, the son of Raymond and Sonja (Kangas) (Salo) Aalto.
Allen was a very kind, loving, and sweet man who will be greatly missed by all who knew him. He did not have a mean bone in his body and tried to always look at things in a positive light. The twinkle in his eyes that appeared when he was excited about something was and will be difficult to miss. Allen grew up in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan where he developed a great love for nature and animals. Allen earned a Bachelor’s degree at Northern Michigan University in Marquette, a Master’s Degree from the University of Nebraska-Omaha, and a PhD in psychology from the University of Florida in Gainesville. He began his teaching career at Fort Hays State University in Hayes, Kansas, and then for over 21 years at the University of Maine at Presque Isle. Allen greatly enjoyed teaching his students and took tremendous pleasure in seeing them succeed.
Allen is survived by his wife, Christina Salo and two step-sons, Nathan and Justin Quint of Easton; his mother, Sonja (Salo) Aalto and his step-father, Howard Alto of Rock, MI; his brother, Mark Salo and his wife, Laurie of Bozeman, MT; his two nieces, Jordan Salo and Whitney Jelinek and many special aunts, uncles, cousins and friends all over the country.
Allen was predeceased by his father, Raymond Salo in 1980.
