Known as satdoc2 here on this forum. My father passed away on August 20th of this year.
This was the program at his funeral. He has quite the collection of Studebakers and parts, that my mom needs to liquidate.
Allen was born January 1st, 1941 in Pelly, Texas, now known as Baytown. He fell asleep in death on August 10th, 2016 at the age of 75. He fought hard against multiple myeloma cancer for 14 years.
He was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses in 1950 in a bayou. He was appointed to serve as an elder in 1977. Among many of the privileges he enjoyed, he also served faithfully as Coordinator of the Body of Elders of the Uvalde English Congregation for 26 years.
He is survived by his wife Nancy whom he married in 1963, and his 97-year-old mother Lucille French. He is also survived by his three sons, Randy and his wife Sonia; Woody and his wife Christine; and Dwayne. Allen had 5 grandchildren - Wesley, Jonathan, Travis, Whitney, and Wylie. Allen is also leaving behind his sister Shirley, her daughters Renee and Rachel, his nephew Jerry French, and great nephews Brandon Carrasco and Dane French.
As many of us are well aware, Allen was quite the character with his varied interests and hobbies. He was especially known for his generosity in helping other people. He was a home builder for many years, building over 20 homes in Uvalde County. He also had experience as an auto mechanic, owned a satellite TV business for 24 years, commercial fished, made signs, and the list goes on.
Allen had a firm belief in the Bible’s hope of the resurrection, and we look forward to seeing him strong and healthy again.
