Allan B. Camper, 71, of Sycamore, passed away on Thursday, April 8, 2021, at Kobacker House, Columbus.

Allan graduated in 1968 from Tiffin Columbian High School and from Nashville Auto Diesel College in Tennessee. He spent most of his career as a car hauler, retiring after 40 years.
At a young age Allan was a champion go-cart racer and quickly grew to love motorcycles and continued this passion throughout his life from building bikes, operating his own part shop, to riding fast and furious with his friends.
He was a good father and loved by many. Those that he called friend he treated like family.
