Allen Joseph Okorn Obituary


Allen Joseph Okorn, 67, passed away Dec. 3, 2016, surrounded by his loving family.

Al leaves behind his children, Mary, Nathan (Mary), Rachel Fortier (David) and Ryan. He was the proud grandpa
("Papa Al") of Elias, Abigail, Tristan, David, Victor and Kate. He will be sorely missed by siblings Linda Hogan (Steve), Jim (Kathy), Ed (Diane), Joe (Rhonda) and Carolyn Young (Tallie).

He was preceded in death by his parents, Joseph and Frances Okorn. 
Al was a beloved uncle to many.

Al spent six years in the Navy on the nuclear sub Sand Lance. After retiring from more than 30 years of service at the Perry Nuclear Power Plant, he enjoyed spending time with his family, music, fishing, and working on his award-winning MG Midget. A unique soul, Al was the quintessential prankster and always had an appropriate joke for the occasion.

Visitation was held from 2 to 4 p.m. on Sat., Dec. 10 at Zele Funeral Home, 452 E 152 St., Cleveland.

I worked with Al at Perry for many years. He was very intelligent, dedicated and a hard worker. My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this difficult time.

I worked with al during the start up of the Perry Plant. He was a very good person to work with. His dry sense of humor was always something that would catch you off guard.
He was always a concerned supervisor taking care of his employees. He will be missed
I will keep his family in my prayers during this time go morning.

Ps will always remember spagetti nights on shift.

Oh MG will missed. We so enjoyed your quirky personality. Many fond memories while Mike built your engine for your MG. I will get good use out of the meatloaf pan you gave us. We'll miss your visits bringing "roller dogs" from Circle K. Godspeed our friend....Mike & Cindy Schiberl

I had the great pleasure to work with Al at the Perry Plant prior to start up and well into years of commercial operation. He was a very hard worker and had a great technical mind. He also had a great sense of humor and would always make time for a chat or to cheer you up or help you out.
In later years I had the great fortune of having Al as a neighbor. In our retirement we would often chat about topics of the day out in the drive-way. He loved working on his car and in the yard.
He was a great neighbor and friend. He will be sorely missed.
My wife, Deb and I will keep him and his family in our prayers.

Al was my best friend. We grew up in the same neighborhood and went to grade school and high school together. Al was simply a good man with a sense of humor that was unique. He took me on a tour of the nuclear submarine he worked on and that was a real experience seeing the nuclear reactor he operated. I enjoyed my friendship with him and I will miss him tremendously.


Al made us all laugh so much with his unique sense of humor. Here he is playing balinca at the Fairport Slovenian Club, where the Okorn brothers played in a league.
