Allen Dean Pierucci

Allen was born July 25, 1956, in Bakersfield to Julian and Geraldine Pierucci who have preceded him in death. He grew up in Buttonwillow and learned farming alongside his dad. Allen has continued the legacy with his son. Besides his love for his wife, Lori, and son, Seth, Allen loved farming with such a passion he could make a total stranger feel it. You could see that passion in the antique tractor collection that he had restored. He thoroughly loved teaching others about farming. To better teach their classes, schoolteachers would take tours of local farms. They always loved ending their day at Allen’s ranch where they enjoyed an Italian home cooked meal. He volunteered in classrooms to talk to the students about farming. In 2010, he was proud to have received the High Cotton Award, Western Division, one of only four awarded in the nation. Western Farm Press featured Allen on the cover of their magazine.

Allen loved his animals, especially his ride along buddy, Beretta. When he wasn’t working, Allen enjoyed taking one of his corvettes out for a ride. He loved cruising to the beach, listening to his favorite music. He also enjoyed his visits from Uncle Cookie (Joe Pierucci, Jr.) and the stories they shared. Allen was known for having reserved seats at all his favorite restaurants, and for his signature red shoes.

One thing Allen had in abundance was friends. He had friends who ranged anywhere from childhood and high school to those he may have known only a brief time. His friends all know how special they were to Allen.

Surviving Allen are his wife, Lori; son and daughter-in-law, Seth and Taylor; sister, Annette Andreotti and her children, Joseph (Jenny) Andreotti, Tyler (Heidi) Andreotti; Joe (Uncle Cookie) Pierucci, Jr.; mother-in-law, Barbara Fleetwood; sister-in-law, Melanie (Michael) Burleson and their children, Jordan, Jeramy (Taylor), Jade Burleson, Josh (Layne) McNabb, Sarah (Stephen) Cabral, and Kelsey (Michael) Littlejohn.

Lori, I was so saddened to hear of Allen's Passing! My memory of him will be when I would be cycling and he would drive up next to me to say hello and always talked about Seth and how proud he was of him! I would ask him how's Lori and he would say oh she's probably home cooking me something… and I'd say that's a good woman. Last time I spoke to him he said "Be careful out there, Be safe!" May God Give you and Seth strength during this time!

I had so many stories of all the shenanigans my brother Allen pulled on me over the years. It was like where do I start? My lord if you knew Allen you know what I mean. So instead I will just talk about this one time that he surprised me with one very sweet thing. Allen was quite the collector of many different things. One being sunglasses. I just remember he had the most beautiful pair of brushed silver metal Ray Bans with a gold nose piece. They were the most beautiful pair of glasses I had ever seen. I told him wow I love those. A few weeks later I was in the house and heard him roaring up his engine and honking outside. Just laying down on that damn horn. I walked out and he was grinning from ear to ear. He said come here Coot I got you something. There were the beautiful Ray Bans I loved and even ordered in the smaller size to fit me. He knew how much I loved them and knew I didn\'t have the money myself to buy. I cried and he said \" Oh shit shut up Cootie.\' You see it wasn\'t about the sunglasses really. It was that he took the time to do something to show he loved me by taking the time to do this for me. Maybe small to some but big to me. I miss my brother and can\'t believe he is gone. I guess you don\'t know how much you love someone till they are gone. If lol he is reading this somehow. I will say you are welcome brother I didn\'t embarrass you by spilling all of your shenanigans. I love you and will miss you until I see you again. Love Cootie.❤️
