Allan B. “Pinky” Pinkerton, 81, husband of the late Judy (Moore) Pinkerton of Glenmoore, PA passed away on Saturday, July 15, 2023, surrounded by his family in Paoli Memorial Hospital after a short illness.

Born on April 12, 1942, in West Chester, PA, he was the son of the late Reuben and Frances (Willard) Pinkerton.

He was devoted to his family and dogs and enjoyed watching Philly sports and NASCAR. Allan would offer anyone who stopped by a cup of coffee as well as engaging them in a lively discussion of the impact of the internet on today’s youth, politics, and the weather or join him in watching old Western’s including Bonanza and The Rifleman.
