Christopher Shawn Allen, Jr. was born on June 1, 2002 to Christopher and Demia Allen
Chris, affectionately known as "CJ" spent a lot of his early years playing Pop Warner Football including going to the National championships in 2013. He also played little league baseball and basketball with MABC and No Books No Ball where he was a member of the 3-point Foundation. Chris attended St. Patrick's School through 7th grade then Melrose Middle/High School. CJ participated in 2 winning Football State Championship teams at Melrose High and graduated in 2020 in the midst of Covid.
In 2020, CJ started his own landscaping business, CJ's Landscaping. He was so excited to apply to the plumbers union earlier this year and learned that he was accepted while he was in the hospital. He planned to use his business knowledge to run a successful business once he had developed his plumbing skills. He thoroughly enjoyed his current job as a valet driver. He loved cars and people so the position was very suiting.
CJ was best known for a personality that could light up a room and for being a genuine person. CJ enjoyed playing video games, attending sporting events and hanging out and traveling with both his friends and family. CJ was a model big brother and son and had a fashion sense that gave him a style and swag like no other.
CJ leaves to cherish in his memory: his parents, Demia and Christopher Shawn Allen, Sr.; sisters Demya and Delia Allen and younger brother Caleb Allen; grandparents Jerome & Rosa Allen (Boston), David & Diedre Piazza (Boston) & Chris Little (Pomona, CA); great-grand parents, Carolyn "GGma" Wells and Ed Bufford, Emogene McRae, and Majorie Little, all of Boston; his furr babies, Bella & Bailey, and a host of aunts, uncles,cousins,family, and friends.
CJ passed away on June 8, 2023.
CJ will be greatly missed and forever holds a special place in all of our hearts.
