With the recent death of former Henry County Magistrate John Allgeier, Henry County lost one of our truly dedicated citizens. Words can not express how much his friendship meant to me and to so many others whose lives he touched. Maybe he did a wedding for you or a family member. Maybe you called him about a road that needed repairing, or you met him while he was serving as a volunteer fireman. Maybe he told you a joke, or laughed with you at the stock yard sales. Maybe he was just there when you needed a friend.
John Allgeier was one of the kindest people I have ever met. His concern was always for others. It was said that John’s love for his family, his farm, his friends, and his love for Henry County made John a very special person. John is going to be missed by all of us who were lucky enough to have known him.
