Richard C. Allinson

SARANAC — Richard C. Allinson, 76, of the Picketts Corners Road, Saranac, died Thursday, Sept. 27, 2012, at his home with his loving family by his side. His passing followed a courageous, yearlong struggle with lung cancer.

He was born in Plattsburgh, Dec. 25, 1935, the son of Charles Bud and Lois (Manley) Allinson.

A 1954 graduate of Saranac Central High School, he attended ATI College at Canton. He later enlisted in the United States Army. In 1959, he and his brother opened Allinson Motors, in Saranac. At this location the brothers offered many years of mechanical services, used cars and snowmobiles. They later established Bud's Diner, across the road from Allinson Motors, on Route 3. He retired after selling the automotive business and settled down on the homestead with his critters, the many small animals regarded as pets.

He was an avid hunter in his younger years, and later in his life enjoyed restoring vintage automobiles and military vehicles. One he especially enjoyed restoring, a WWII Jeep, is currently on display at the Transportation Museum on the New Base.

Richard first married Patricia MacDonald in 1957, and from that union had a son, Andrew Allinson, formerly of Westminster, Colo., and now of Saranac; two daughters, Diane Dumas (George) of Cadyville, and Sue Davis (Ken) of Saranac; and three grandsons, Luke Dumas of Saranac Lake, and Christopher and Matt Davis of Saranac. Richard later married Marion ''Mim'' Baker and leaves a step-daughter, Robin Hinson (Rich Plumadore) of Cadyville; step-son, Robert Baker (Barbara) of Cadyville; step grandchildren, Andrea Baker of Sacramento, Calif., Nathan Baker of Reading, Pa., John Hinson of Plattsburgh, and Jaimie Plumadore, of Cadyville; two sisters, Anne Lassell and Georgia Klein; a brother and sister-in-law, Wallace Hap and Judy Allinson of Saranac; and many nieces and nephews.

He was predeceased by his parents; wife, Marion Evelyn ''Mim'' Allinson, Aug. 27, 2011; step-son, William R. Baker, June 28, 2009.
