Allen was my cousin. I didn’t get to spend much time with him over the years, but I have wonderful memories from childhood. The last few years I have been able to keep up with him through Sheri. He was happy and full of life. He will be missed. Also, sending love and prayers to his family, I love you all!

It is difficult to begin to express how very much Allen’s friendship has meant to me for more than 45 years. We began our relationship in 1976. I wasn’t blessed with a brother and Allen became my surrogate “BIG Brother” . He was sunshine in a bottle. His wonderful sense of humor, his smile, his laugh, those eyes. He was genuine in his love for family, friends and the earth his entire life. He was so caring and giving. His creativeness knew no limits! Painting, beautiful iron works, and the green thumb that man possessed!!! He fathered two handsome young men, Matthew and Aaron. He knew the joy of being a Grandfather to James, a great brother to Mike, Suzy and Sharon. Allen lived life on his terms and realized his dreams. I know because he told me many years ago what he wanted in life. His hugs were the best! I’ll treasure all my greeting cards and I’ll miss that New Years day call, where we would usually catch up on each other’s families and lives. Suzy, Sharon, Matthew and Aaron like the rest of us that loved and miss Allen will have a big hole in our hearts for a very long time, if not for life. Thank you for your love David Allen Haughee. This world is not the same knowing your not in it. I will miss you till my dying day. ❤️🙏🏻

Allen was my first cousin and my first vivid memory of him was skiing barefoot when the Haughee family lived in Ft. Walton FL. Allen reminded me of my Uncle Jim because he followed his own beating drum.

I met Allen many years ago hitching home from Mt. View with his dog in a snow storm from the Iron Works where he worked. I normally never pick up a hitch hiker but these circumstances were such that you'd not drive by anyone under those conditions. We had a nice chat. I let him out at the end of his road and continued my journey to Welcome Home. We later met again years later and shared the memory of that snowy day long ago. We would met many times in the future in Leslie and catch up on gardening (I have two peach trees in my garden today that he gave me). Allen was a beautiful Human Being. I'm at a loss for further words. I can hardly believe he has made his transition. To his children, sisters Sharon and Suzanne and his soul mate Sheri....I share in your sarrow and send many blessings your way. Godspeed Allen.

My brother Allen was my best friend. We spoke daily, always trying to solve the world’s problems. The love he had for his family and friends was deep and genuine. His artistry, whether it was painting, landscaping or ironwork, made his little slice of the world a beautiful thing to behold. I’ll miss his sharp wit, his passion and our great conversations. I’ll see you again, Brother!
All my love,
Your baby sister

Allen was such a good person and one of my best friends. We worked together at Griffith's. We lost touch for a while but I always think back about the fun times we had. I am glad I got to talk to him on the phone a few years back. I am so sorry for your loss, he was taken too soon.
