Allan was born in Lawrence, Massachusetts on December 9, 1936. He retired as a captain and tank commander from the U.S. Army and went on to graduate from the University of Florida School of Law in 1964. Allan then went on to become one of South Florida’s most recognized litigators whose aggressive legal representation earned him a reputation across the community as one of the most competent, ethical and compassionate trial attorneys in the region. A dedicated member of the Florida Bar, Miami-Dade Bar Association and the American Arbitrators Association - those who knew Allan best said he would “tap shoe” into the courtroom while on his way to earning one of his many multi-million dollar verdicts.
Allan is survived by his wife Bonnie Cohen of 47 years; daughters Lisa Bunn and Lori Radice; sons Judson Cohen and Chad Cohen; brother Bernie Cohen; sister Judy Schuler; many loving grandchildren (Allan Radice, Corinne Bunn, Austin Bunn, Joshua Cohen, Katherine Cohen, Mathias Cohen and Oliver Cohen), nieces, nephews and extended family. Allan was the best and most loving father, husband, grandfather and friend to everyone.
Allan loved sports, especially football. His favorite teams were the Miami Dolphins and the Florida Gators. He spent his free time watching various sporting events live and on TV, and he was an active golfer, marathon runner and club champion tennis player. But most of all, he loved traveling the world with his wife Bonnie. Some of their most favorite trips were to Nepal, Vietnam, Brazil, China, Kenya, Iceland, Yugoslavia, New Guinea, Myanmar and places in between. He also enjoyed movies, history and current events. Allan was always there to help family and friends, and loved his neighbors across his community at the Royal Harbor Yacht Club.
For those who knew Allan best, he will always be fondly remembered as the “Silver Fox.”
A special thanks to the doctors, nurses and staff of the Miami Cancer Institute at Baptist Health South Florida for their loving care and support. In lieu of flowers, Allan’s family asks that donations be made to the American Cancer Society in his honor.
