Obituary

Michael Joseph Allwein, passed away peacefully at age 67 in Frisco, Texas on December 21, 2022.

He was born to Herbert Joseph Allwein and Joan Biever Allwein on January 18, 1955 at Barksdale Air Force Base in Bossier City, Louisiana.  Mike grew up at Barksdale Airforce Base in Bossier City, LA, Tachikawa Air Force Base, Tokoyo, Japan and Offutt Air Force Base in Omaha, NE.  He attended the University of Nebraska in Lincoln, NE and University of Nebraska-Omaha.

While living in Nebraska, Mike worked as a journey man iron worker and an electronics technician repairing pinball machines and arcade games.

Mike married the love of his life, Vicki Inell Wetzler in Omaha, Nebraska, on October 6, 1979.  Mike and Vicki lived in Omaha until they moved to Plano, Texas in 1985 when the company he worked for relocated.

Mike spent most of his life doing what he loved.  Working in golf course construction, golf course maintenance or golf cart fleet maintenance until his retirement as Irrigation Supervisor from TPC Craig Ranch, McKinney, TX in January, 2010.  He was involved in the construction and maintenance of the King’s and Queen’s golf courses at Gleneagles Country Club in Plano, TX; construction of Indian Creek Golf Course in Carrollton, TX and Fords Colony Country Club in Williamsburg, VA as well as the construction of the redesigned Northwood Country Club in Dallas, TX.  He managed golf cart fleets at Gleneagles Country Club in Plano, TX and Stonebriar Country Club in Frisco, TX.  Mike was an avid golfer who loved playing and watching golf on TV or in person whenever possible.  One of the highlights of his many years of playing golf was the hole-in-one he hit on Hole #6 at Stonebriar Country Club on May 3, 1989.  He was so excited he threw the ball into the lake!

When Mike wasn’t working in a golf related business, he was an electrician’s apprentice for Tab Electric and Petri Electric.  He was affectionately called “Sparky” by his co-workers.

Mike was a loyal friend and was loved by all who knew him, worked with him or worked for him.  As a manager, he was a teacher who taught his staff how to do things the right way the first time even if it meant it took a little longer to complete the task.  Most of all Mike treated everyone with respect no matter their position in life and he did whatever he could to help give his employees a better life.  To this day he receives text messages from former employees thanking him for teaching them the skills to better themselves and for his generosity.

Mike entered into a personal relationship with his Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ while a student at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.  He was a member of Lebanon Baptist Church in Frisco, TX.

Survivors include his wife of 43 years, Vicki Allwein; his mother Joan Allwein of Plano, Texas; his brothers Greg Allwein of Bellevue, Nebraska and James Allwein of Logan, Utah; and his sister Leslie Williams of Plano, Texas.  Mike was preceded in death by his father, Herbert Allwein.

A memorial service will be held at 10:00 a.m. January 13, 2023 at Lebanon Baptist Church, 9404 Lebanon Road, Frisco, Texas followed by a private family graveside service at Ridgeview West Memorial Park in Frisco, TX.  In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to Lebanon Baptist Church or the charity of your choice.

    Mike was such a kind and outgoing man. I am grateful to God for having known him and grateful to Christ for saving him.
    “When the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.” “O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law.” (1 Corinthians 15:54–56, ESV)

"If I could give 6 stars I would. Aria made a difficult easier to deal with by basically taking care of everything in an efficient but very empathetic manner. I can speak highly enough of Dusty Martin, who helped us with all of the planning and logistics. He was incredibly understanding and helpful."

"Nothing prepares you for the grief you go through when losing a child. I called this funeral home at 2:00 am broken and could barely talk. The amount of compassion and empathy they showed me immediately let me know I found the right place to cremate my son. I cannot thank them enough for their professionalism, SINCERE concern, and commitment to making sure my son was honored in the most respectful way. I hope this Funeral home values her as much as my family and I do."

"I can’t say enough about how helpful and professional Dusty Martin, the funeral director at the Aria Cremation location on NW Highway has been. From my initial call, he was kind and informative. My friend died at home while on hospice and she was picked up in about an hour after receiving the call from the hospice nurse. The person who arrived to pick her up was also very professional/respectful and allowed us to take as much time with her as we wished. When I met with Dusty the next day about arrangements, he explained the process and options available without being pushy or trying to “sell” extras. Throughout the process, he kept me informed and, for example, was careful to be certain I understood the cost of the obituary I wanted and offered some options for reducing that cost if I wished. When I stopped by for another reason and started talking about some of the problems I was having with the pictures and media I hoped to use at a memorial lunch I was planning, he not only listened patiently but offered technology advice and let me use his personal media player. I have had experience arranging cremations for four others using two other local companies, and this experience with Dusty at Aria has been by far the best one I have had."

"My Daddy’s service and our family experience at Aria Northwest Highway was truly blessed. Funeral Director Dustin Martin is the kind of person that you would like to see on a more regular basis – but in his industry – you hope to not see him that often. That being said – THANK YOU DUSTIN for your unending kindness, compassion and friendship through the process. Meeting you and discussing Dallas History, Find A Grave and my Dad’s lifelong contributions to the great City of Dallas was simply wonderful! In memory of my dad James A. Dodd, Sr. – I want to personally thank you and let you know that you made everything better in that moment. Your calling to “Be There” is spot on. Aria has a one in a million guy in you! Bling Blinky of TEXAS Shout Out: God Bless You!!"
