Jim Allen, Former Scotty's Tavern Owner, Passes Away

We are sad to report the passing of Jim Allen, former Scotty's tavern owner and an amazing Route 66 character.

Jim died of massive stroke following a heart attack on June 19th. A celebration of his life will be held at Daudermann Funeral Home in Hamel, across the street from Weezy's at 12:00 on Wednesday, June 22nd. The family is inviting everyone to Weezy's following the service for food, drink, and to share memories of the tye dye guy and the adventures of Traveler, the Jackalope.

In a personal message from Association President, Cathie Stevanovich, she says, "Pat and Jim were on this year's Motor Tour with us and we had a great time. I am heartbroken."
