    Allen was a truly a man who never said no. He mastered his health issues with grace, jovially, and hope. He lived the way he wanted and died on his terms. Our world will miss him. He walks among Christ, our Heavenly Father and the Holy Ghost now. All our prayers to his family and friends.

    Allen came to work for us after moving into The Villages and buying a golf cart from us. He always had great ideas, was very personable, well liked, and was a hard worker even in his retired years. He will be missed so much from the Carts & Clubs family. RIP Allen.

    Nothing in life is better than having siblings you can always count on. Someone to help you, teach you, comfort you, and most importantly protect you. This was and is the definition of my brother, Allen. I will miss you greatly.
