Desmond W Allen age 65, dedicated husband, father, grandfather and friends to many, passed away on October 30, 2022 after a very short battle with cancer.
He was born on March 2, 1957 to Billy Allen and Naomi Allen (Barker), in Tampa, Florida. He is survived by his brothers Maurice Allen (Roxann), Dennis Allen, Matt Allen (Wendy) and sister Billie Lewis. His parents preceded him in death.

His quick whit and funny sarcasm are going to be greatly missed by all who truly knew him. He was owner of Allen Flooring, Painting and Home Repairs. He worked at his profession in excess of 50 years. He enjoyed time spent with his family and friends, as well as watching his favorite old western shows. Many times he would state “my job is to make sure nobody steals the TV.”
