Allan L. Covlin

August 13, 1939 — October 28, 2023

In loving memory of Allan Covlin


It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Allan Covlin, a beloved husband, father, and grandfather on Saturday, October 28, 2023. He was born on August 13, 1939, to James and Frances Covlin in Williston, ND.


Allan graduated from Williston High School in 1957 and from the University of North Dakota in 1962 with a Bachelors of Science in Industrial Engineering. Allan began his career in Bismarck as a professional engineer with the ND Department of Transportation where he remained until his 2008 retirement.


Allan will be forever remembered as a devoted spouse, having shared a lifetime of love, laughter, and cherished moments alongside his beloved wife, Virginia Covlin. Their bond was a testament to their commitment to one another and has served as an inspiration to all who knew them.


Allan especially looked forward to fall, football, and hunting pheasants with his children and grandchildren.


Throughout his life, Allan exemplified the qualities of strength, kindness, and perseverance. His warm smile and gentle demeanor brought comfort and joy to those around him. He had a deep love for his family and friends, and his presence will be greatly missed.


Allan's memory will continue to live on through the countless lives he has touched. His legacy of love and compassion will forever be engrained in the hearts of his surviving relatives, including his beloved wife, Virginia; his children: Michael Covlin, Suzanne Schreiner  ( Andrew) and grandchildren: Harrison and Mazie Schreiner, Cullen and Quinn Covlin. He was predeceased by a daughter Jennifer.


Allan Covlin's presence will be dearly missed, but his spirit will forever be cherished. May he rest in eternal peace.


Cremation has taken place and services will be held at a later date in 2024.
