TRI-CITIES, WA - We're honoring the life and service of a well-respected man in the Tri-Cities community.

Ed Allen, an active member of the Columbia Center Rotary and former Kennewick Man of the Year, passed away on Dec. 30th. Although he is no longer with us, many will remember his positive impact on local youth and contagious sense of humor.
