Never in a million years did I think I would ever be writing this tribute to Ricky! I had the honor of working with a Ricky at Post 2 Madisonville! During my 2 year assignment at Post 2, Ricky and I became good friends! Ricky was always smiling and joking, always had a positive perspective on work issues! Ricky understood the concept of public service better than anyone I encountered in my K.S.P. career! Ricky was a true believer and achiever during His career in Law Enforcement! He was a loyal friend to me, friends and family! I remember how proud he was when his son Jake was born! Although I haven't seen a Ricky in 17 years, I still cherished our friendship! God Bless Amy, Jake, Emmy and family! Heaven is now a much better place with The presence of Ricky! My heart breaks for his family and friends! RIP my good friend! Kelly

I am sorry for your loss. Ricki and I went to the state police academy together, he always had a smile on his face. It had been a few years since I had seen Ricki, but he has always remained a friend.

Such a tragic loss. Ricki was a rare individual. He was every parent's dream. Great Christian, superlative family man, community servant and leader, loved by young and old alike. Amy and family, our hearts are broken for you but we all know where he is at now and those of us who are believers know we will see him again. God bless and comfort you during the ensuing days ahead.

Sending love & prayers to family and friends for this loss. Ricki had a spark that lit up the room he entered. You would immediately have to smile and you would take on Ricki's energy as he proceeded to make you feel accepted and loved. Ricki's heart and soul will be missed. A great leader of men and women.

Ricki Allen was such a class act! He always had warm smile but was a fierce competitor. I played against and with Ricki in many KSP tournaments. Ricki was a great leader and mentor and will be truly missed in his profession. He never asked anyone to do anything that he wouldn't do himself.

I know Ricki was a great family man which was most impressive. In a world where this is not as evident anymore, Ricki set the example by being such a good Husband, Father and Friend.

I can not imagine the grief of the Allen family and I would like to extend my condolences. There are no true words to console during this time of grief but know that Ricki Allen made a TRUE DIFFERENCE in this world and we were truly blessed to have him in our lives!

Good morning, I just wanted to reach out to the Allen family and tell you Ricki was my son's Post Captain at Post 3 here in Bowling Green. My son Chad thought the world of Capt. Allen and had a lot of good times when they worked together at the post. I'm sad to say our son Chad passed away on July 10, 2020 here in Bowling Green. He retired July of 2019 and didn't get to enjoy retirement very long. Our son died of cirrhosis of the liver and alcohol problems. I know Chad and Capt. Allen is having a good time together and telling a lot of stories.
My wife Patty and I send our deepest sympathy and will keep you all in our prayers.

Allen Family:
Ricki was one of the most caring, and unselfish people I have ever had the privilege of knowing. I've never seen him when he didn't have a smile, a wave, or a hug ready. He was one of the good ones. Gone way too soon! My thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time.

I ask God to send Angels to hold each of you close and to give you a peace that passes all understanding.

While I was Chief of the Madisonville Police Department we had the honor of hiring Ricki as young 21 year old Patrol Officer in 1990. Ricki only stayed with our Department for about 2 years and left to join the Kentucky State Police. We hated to see Rickie leave , but I knew his heart was set on becoming a State Trooper as I was when I was 21 years old. I have watched Ricki as he advance through the ranks of the KSP and as Sheriff of Muhlenberg County. As a Retired KSP Sergeant Shirley and I are proud to think we a small part of Ricki's career in Law Enforcement. To Ricki's family and friends I know you are asking "WHY" and the void in your heart will never be filled but try to remember the big smile on his face. RON HUNT, Retired KSP Sergeant

God puts people on earth as Angels and I believe he was one. He was always the same. The same smile, friendly, up lifting and positive ways. Bremen will not be the same and we will forever be grateful for the impact he was in our lives our kids and everyone's life.
