Wow :( I can't believe this happened so soon but then I am also glad that he didn't have to go through much suffering.

RIP Mr Legend, the magic world is a different place without you :(

Being new to magic, Allen went out of his way to offer help and advice when I asked for it, as he did for so many others on here and other forums. A sad loss to the magic community. RIP Allen.

He didn't get those months after all. Once you are so ill, it all becomes a bit of a lottery. Rest easy, Allen, your work is done, but lives on.

On http://www.magicweek.co.uk:

Allen Tipton sadly passed away in his sleep on Thursday 8th November. Freddie Wilkinson writes:

My closest and dearest friend Allen Tipton sadly passed away in his sleep on Thursday 8th November after a short battle with cancer. Allen was well known to many magicians for his valued help and advice, be it FISM and IBM winners or just average Joe's like myself. Allen had a long running article in "Abra" and in later years became a very active magic forum member and contributor. He was also a great performer staging his own tribute to "Dante" and entertained thousand of children as "Mr Tippy" When he wasn't performing or advising he was the driving force behind the "Nottingham Guild of Magicians" and was its President on numerous occasions. Outside of magic he was a well known ventriloquist, actor, director, producer and drama teacher, who could boast teaching the likes of Richard Beckinsale, Chris Gascoyne and many many more famous names. Most importantly he was a loving husband to his wife Barbara, and a loving owner of his little dog Pixie. I will miss him greatly.

RIP, Allen.

Though I never had the opportunity to meet Allen in person, we briefly corresponded a few years ago when he came to the rescue regarding a particular magic routine, also sending me a gift in the post - a lovely surprise! Allen's kindness, advice and generosity was always much appreciated.

This is very sad news for me. Allen and I had an email correspondence over the last 4 years, and he was always helpful and kind to me. I sent him an email recently and haven't heard back, and google just confirmed my worst suspicions.

I'll miss him very much.
