Mark (Strapper) Allred, 58, passed away Nov. 29, 2021, at the University of Utah Hospital after a long fight against multiple myeloma. He was born June 28, 1963, in Vernal, Utah, to Dixie and Kenneth Allred.
Mark lived in many different places but mainly grew up in Sanpete County and settled in Edra, Utah. He loved the outdoors, anytime he could go camping to the mountains or away on a RZR ride with family and friends he was happy. Anything with speed or power interested him. He liked hotrods and car shows, all things to do with semi trucks.
He has spent the last 27 years married to Dianna Allred (Smith). They married in 1994. Together they have worked hard to achieve their dreams and take care of each other along their journey. Dianna has been Mark’s caretaker for the last 13 years of his cancer treatments. She has been to nearly every appointment and procedure he ever endured.
Mark and Dianna each had daughters entering their marriage. Dianna’s daughters Toni and Brittany, and Mark’s daughter Brooke. In 1995 they welcomed their only son Shane Mark Allred. Mark truly enjoyed being a dad, but not as much as he enjoyed being “Papa Strap” to all his amazing grandkids.
Mark is survived by his parents Kenneth and Dixie Allred; sister Stephanie (Richard) Anderson; brothers Wes Allred, Justin (Alesha) Allred, Kurt (Tracy) Allred, Joe Allred; his wife Dianna Allred; kids Shane (Makenzie) Allred, Brittany Magno, Toni Perez, Brooke Wilcox; and many loved grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and friends he considered family.
Special thank you to all the family and friends and especially the BMT Huntsman team and U of U staff that have taken amazing care of him. We appreciate all you have done for our family.
We know how much everyone loved Dad near and far, so we ask that in leu of flowers, “stink weeds” as Dad called them, if you would like to send a donation to help the family with funeral expenses, please Venmo it to @Dianna-Allred or contact one of the family members. Thank you.
