American Veteran 01

Allen E. Cable, Sr.

April 22, 1928 ~ August 30, 2021 (age 93)


Allen E. Cable, Sr. 93, of Milford, passed away on August 30, 2021. Born on April 22, 1928 in Bridgeport, CT, he was the son of the late Walter and Ida (Allen) Cable.  

Allen proudly served his country in the United States Army 82nd Airborne during WWII. He graduated from Yale University in 1952 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering and then obtained a Master’s Degree from Wesleyan University. Allen retired from the State of CT’s Norwalk Community College after working for over 30 years as a Professor of Mathematics. 

Allen had a penchant for mechanical devices at an early age, often tinkering at his cousin’s garage and boat yard after school and completion of his newspaper route. Eventually this led to a love of automobiles that he coveted the rest of his life. In later years he joined the Bonnet and Boot sports car club and enjoyed racing in local gymkhana style courses with his home tuned antique metropolitan. Allen was a lifelong resident of Milford. Spent his retirement years enjoying time with his family and holiday get togethers.

Allen is survived by his children, Allen (Gail) Cable Jr. and Ann Cable; his grandchildren, Christine (Sean) Dion, Joeline Carangelo, and Angela Cable; his great-grandchildren, Gabriella, and Aubrey Dion; his sister, Barbara (Mike) Luffred; and several nieces and nephews. Allen was predeceased by his brother, Raymond.
