Mark (Strapper) Allred

Mark (Strapper) Allred, 58, passed away on November 29, 2021, at the University of Utah Hospital after a long fight against Multiple Myeloma. He was born on June 28, 1963, in vernal, UT to Dixie and Kenneth Allred.

Mark lived many different places but mainly grew up in Sanpete County and settled in Edra, UT. He loved the outdoors, anytime he could go camping to the mountains or away on a RZR ride with family and friends he was happy. Anything with speed or power interested him. He liked hotrods and car shows, all things to do with Semi trucks.

He has spent the last 27 years married to Dianna Allred (Smith). They married in 1994. Together they have worked hard to achieve their dreams and take care of each other along their journey. Dianna has been Mark’s caretaker for the last 13 years of his cancer treatments. She has been to nearly every appointment and procedure he ever endured.

Mark and Dianna each had daughters entering their marriage. Dianna’s daughters Toni and Brittany, and Mark’s daughter Brooke. In 1995 they welcomed their only son Shane Mark Allred. Mark truly enjoyed being a dad but not as much as he enjoyed being “papa strap” to all his amazing grandkids.

Mark is survived by his parents Kenneth and Dixie Allred. Sister Stephanie (Richard) Anderson, Brothers: Wes Allred, Justin (Alesha) Allred, Kurt (Tracy) Allred, Joe Allred. His wife Dianna Allred and Kids: Shane (Makenzie) Allred, Brittany Magno, Toni Perez, Brooke Wilcox. Many loved grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and friends he considered family.

Per Marks wishes we will do a small celebration of life and spread his ashes in his special place!

Special thank you to all the family and friends and especially the BMT Huntsman team and U of U staff that have taken amazing care of him. We appreciate all you have done for our family.

We know how much everyone loved dad near and far, so we ask that in leu of flowers “stink weeds” as dad called them, if you would like to send a donation to help the family with funeral expenses, please Venmo it to @Dianna-Allred or contact one of the family members. Thank you.

Celebration of Life will be held on Friday, December 10, 2021 from 6-8 PM at the Dalton-Hoopes Funeral Home, 50 W. Main, Grantsville, Utah 84029

    I remember Strapper well from my days at the dunes. If my dad, Dave, were still here, he’d be crying about Strapper being gone. I remember Strapper to be a fun loving, and always kind guy.

    My thoughts are with your family at this time.

    John and Mark worked together for many years. Mark always thought John was hard nosed to work with, but found out that was his way of working and teaching others to work hard. They became best friend and Mark had a deep appreciation for John and the thing he taught him. I worked with Diana for many years and I became a best friend and “mother” to her. She and Mak, John and I have shared many meals together and had a lot of good laughs. We have shared many good stories. John passed on In October and I know that he and mark have many roads to build together. We love you and Mark. Our thoughts and our prayers and th9oughts are with you and your family. Know we love you. Karln
