Message from the President
August 29, 2018

Dear LMU Community:

I am saddened to share with you that Mike Allen, a field desktop technician in Information Technology Services, died unexpectedly on Aug. 21, 2018. He was 57 years old.

Mr. Allen joined LMU in 2006 and was responsible for TechOn2, the ITS student help desk on the second floor of the William H. Hannon Library, where he was a lead resource for student technical support. Mr. Allen offered valuable and comprehensive support on computer issues, troubleshooting, and repairs. He also supervised 10-12 students per semester and trained them to provide professional technical support services. Mr. Allen loved the university and working with our students, who held him in high regard.

Mr. Allen served in the U.S. Army from 1980-83, and he will be buried with military honors in a private ceremony. Rev. James Erps, S.J., will preside at a celebration of his life on Sept. 10, 2018 at 11 a.m. in Huesman Chapel. Lunch will follow the ceremony.

Please keep Mike, his daughter Alexzandrea ’15, his family, and his many friends in your prayers.


Timothy Law Snyder, Ph.D.
