William Allen Shields, 65, passed away on November 20, 2016 in Kansas City, Missouri. He was born on May 26, 1951 in Ottawa, Kansas to parents William B. and Patricia A. Shields.

Allen was born on May 26, 1951 in Ottawa, Kansas. He grew up in Wellsville, Kansas and graduated from Wellsville High School in 1969. He attended college at Allen County Community College and Emporia State University, and worked as VP of sales for Express Card & Label. Allen married Vada in 1974 in Wellsville, Kansas. They were happily married for 42 years.
Allen was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather; an avid supporter of the Kansas City Royals, Chiefs, and of course the Kansas Jayhawks.

He will be deeply missed by his friends, family, and all who knew him.
