Allen was a lifelong resident of Bristol, VA and a member of Liberty Baptist Church. Allen retired from the Bristol Virginia Sheriff's Department in 2007, but continued to work for Senior Navigator until 2019. Allen was actively involved in all aspects of the community and in countless organizations throughout Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia.

Flowers are welcome, but if you would like to donate, the family is asking that you make donation to the Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center at Duke University in honor of his son, Ricky Slagle. Pallbearers will be Zachary Counts, Edan Johnson, Phillip Reynolds, Jim DePaolo, Scott Wise, Eric Beauchemin, and Jeff Davidson.
