The Strange family would like to invite you to a celebration of life in the memory of Allen Strange. We will be gathering at the San Jose Mexican Heritage Plaza. This facility seems to provide the perfect atmosphere for Allen’s remembrance.

Formal events were not a favorite of Allen’s so this will be casual.
Tie-dyed shirts, shorts and sandals are perfectly acceptable!

There will be an open mic for people to speak, sing or play a tune in Allen’s memory. Appetizers will be available, Mexican of course, as well as beer and wine. This is an open event for anyone who wishes to join us. If you know someone that may be interested, please feel free to pass along the information.

Please RSVP at Allen’s blog.

If anybody wishes to help with this event it would be greatly appreciated.
Please feel free to email Pat at: patstrange1 at

  1. Fond memories of doing “Rockytop Screamers and Other Scapes” with Bill Trimble and the Chamber Wind Ensemble at Saratoga High in 1972. I was then a 14-year-old bassoonist, and it was the wildest music I had ever come across.
