A 67-year-old Lakewood man died last week after police think he slipped on ice and hit his head.

Police found Allen Byers Stern dead in his home at 6567 Patrick Drive on Friday, according to a police report. The cause of death and date of death are unknown.

Officers found Stern, a Hillcrest High School graduate, while performing a welfare check. Stern had not responded to calls or emails from his nephew in two days, according to a post on the Hillcrest High School in Memoriam Facebook page.

Stern had a head wound, and finding no signs of trauma in the house, authorities think he might have fallen on ice outside his home and went inside to rest.

Friends and family paid their respects Tuesday at a graveside memorial service at Tiferet Israel Cemetery.
