Darrell Edward Allen, of LaRue, was called home to his eternal residence in Heaven, on Sunday, the 16th of February 2020. He was born in Houston, Texas on December 18, 1956 to Donnie Allen and Minnie Belle Garner Allen Locke.
He was preceded in death by his father, Donnie Allen; his sister Lucretia Steagall.
Darrell was self-employed for 40 years as a concrete contractor. He enjoyed many outside sports, including bicycling, hunting, fishing, and sporting clays. Darrell was a member of Flint Baptist Church in Flint. He loved his church and his church family dearly. Darrell loved Jesus with all he had. He accepted Jesus as his personal Lord and Savior later in his life, and he was determined to tell everyone he met about Him and wanted to make sure that they too would be in Heaven someday. Darrell loved his family dearly, especially his loving and devoted wife of 42 years, Lisa. His children and grandchildren were his pride and joy. He had a special bond with his Fresh Race Team, the bicycling group that he was a part of in Tyler. He will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved him.
