Allen Maybury

Lifetime Meeker resident, Allen Arthur Maybury, died as a result of a motorcycle accident on Saturday, Aug. 8, 2020, in Meeker. He was 71. A funeral service honoring Allen’s life will be held at 11 a.m., Friday, Aug. 14, 2020, at The Church at Meeker. A viewing for family and friends will be held one hour prior to service.

Allen Arthur Maybury was born to Orlo and Merle (Thompson) Maybury on May 10, 1949, in Meeker. He spent his childhood and attended schools in Meeker.  Following high school, Allen joined the United States Army.  He was stationed in Korea and received the nickname “Skosh” from his troop.  

On Sept. 25, 1971, Allen married Martha Murphy.  To this union, Steve and Sheryl were born.  After their marriage ended, Allen married Jona Wigington on Dec. 22, 1984, and was blessed with Darci.   

Allen found employment at the county to support his family.  He also worked on the oil rigs, TIC and for his step father.  His last position he held for over 25 years at Colowyo Coal Company.  He happily retired and enjoyed rubbing it in to those who still had to go to work.

Allen was a member of the NRA and the Sportsman’s Club in Meeker. In this spare time he enjoyed hunting, fishing, golfing, riding his Harley, going to dances and shooting his guns. Above all he was a devoted father and loving grandfather. His family will fondly remember him for his sense of humor.  The more Allen teased and joked around with you, the more he liked you. He will be missed by all that loved and adored him.

Allen is survived by his children: Steve Maybury and his spouse Kathy, Sheryl Maybury, and Darci Dollins and her spouse Scott; siblings: Ken Maybury, Loren Maybury, Lois Tibbs, David Maybury, Robert Maybury, Fred Maybury, Bonnie Shoemaker, and Carol Moore. He is further survived by 11 grandchildren, two great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions be made in Allen’s memory to the Allen Maybury Memorial Fund.
