Allen Stephen Jimick, age 81, of Greencastle, PA, passed away unexpectedly following a brief illness on February 1, 2021, at Magnolias of Chambersburg. Born in Detroit, MI on March 27, 1939, he was the son of the late Stephen Jimick and Katherine Schmidt Jimick Bender.
Mr. Jimick, a graduate of Port Hope High School in Port Hope, MI, went on to serve honorably in the U.S. Navy from 1957 – 1961.

He was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church, UAW Retirees Local 171, AARP, , and a lifetime member of the VFW Post 6319. A friend of Bill W. for many years, Al was involved in many local meetings as a leader and mentor to those in the program. In his spare time, Mr. Jimick enjoyed fishing, traveling, camping and gardening. As someone raised to not be wasteful, there were few items safe from his need to tinker and try to fix things.
