Allen was always ready to help my mom and dad whenever they needed some maintenance on their home. He obviously enjoyed the work and helping people as well. I will always be grateful to him for his kindness and willingness to help them when they were unable to do things for themselves.
So sorry to hear of Allen’s passing. Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to the families. Love and prayers.Jimmie HoutWanda MaysLisa HollandJulie Brown
