A Naperville activist who was shot and killed last month in Chicago is being remembered as a civic leader, business pioneer, father and friend who had an “unwavering personal commitment to community service.”

On Tuesday, DuPage County Board members paid tribute to Ronald Allen during the reading of a proclamation for Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

“Many of us knew Ron,” county board Chairman Dan Cronin said. “He was devoted to his community. He was devoted to his neighbors, his friends and his work as a civic leader.”

Cronin said Allen was someone “who spent each day trying to make his community a better place for all of us.”
