Allen F. Strutz Veterans Memorial Building
Dedicated May 2000
Allen F. Strutz served in the United States Army in World War II in the South Pacific. He subsequently made a volunteer career out of honoring veterans, and for half a century his strong community voice shaped veterans affairs, celebrations, events, and recognitions throughout Alameda County. Mr. Strutz's activities are exemplified by his faithfully conducting Memorial Day remembrance services for more than four decades at Lone Tree Cemetery, including overseeing the placement of thousands of flags on soldiers graves at the Lone Tree and Mr. Eden Cemeteries
For his selfless patriotism and volunteer services on behalf of veterans, the County of
Alameda in May 2000 rededicates the Hayward Memorial Building as the Allen F. Strutz
Veterans Memorial Building.
