Hi Carl, we worked together for Durham County Government in the mid-seventies and early eighties when Bruce Mangum was the Tax Administrator.

I was sorry to hear of the loss of your dad. I hope you will reflect on the good memories that you had with him growing up and know that GOD will uplift you in the days and weeks ahead.

I’m grateful for the time I spent with Carl Allen in BSA Troop 454. Carl kept excellent records for the troop. I still remember the camping trip where Ralph Ripley offered to clean Carl’s new Teflon frying pan for him. It took some effort, but Ralph managed to scrub all the Teflon out of the pan. Like water off a duck’s back, Carl never let Ralph get to him. His cool head and devoted service to others is not forgotten.

Louise and Family: my heart is saddened about Carl but rejoicing at his going home to everlasting life. Mom and Dad have welcomed him, I’m sure!!! I can still see Carl handing out bulletins and ushering with Dad. May God hold you in the palm of His hand and fill your hearts with peace. Love, and prayers for comfort. Jo Ann

Dear Carl, your father was a delight, a true Christian gentleman. I was sorry to read of his death. He’s left a wonderful legacy in many ways and I’m the better for having known him. I always enjoyed working with him through the church. Bless you, Peggy, and your family. I keep you in my prayers.

Condolence from Arthur Clark on March 18th, 2015 3:17 pm

Carl, I was sorry to learn of your father’s passing, but thankful that he had all those years to enjoy his family, as well as his friends. I was not able to be with you at the service and to celebrate his life now that he is at peace. You and yours are in my thoughts and I pray that you share many fond memories of your dad. All the best to you and yours, Arthur

Condolence from Hillman Currin on March 19th, 2015 10:57 am

My sincere condolences to the Allen family. I was fortunate to work for Carl in the office at the ATC from 1968 to 1987. Carl was a great boss to work with and a very sincere person, even when you were called on the carpet in front of his desk. He was instrumental in my further employment in Richmond, Va. when Durham closed. He will always be in my mind as a person that lived up to the ideals of a Christian, and a gentleman. My prayers are with you all.

Condolence from Tim McAdoo on March 19th, 2015 4:26 pm
