Springville

 

Philip Raymond Allen, born in 1952, an Alabama Lumberjack, Business Owner, Man of God, Beloved Husband, Revered Father, Adored Grandfather and Great Friend, died peacefully in his home after a two and a half year battle with Cancer on March 21, in his Springville, Alabama home.

Although living in several other states, he considered Tuscaloosa his home.  Philip graduated from Tuscaloosa High School in 1970.  He graduated from Jacksonville State University with an earned double Masters in Public Administration and Criminal Justice.

Philip met the love of his life, Rita Young Allen, in Cullman in June of 1985 and married in December.  This marriage gifted him with two beautiful children, Christina Allen Reeves and Paul David Allen. Philip sought God and truth daily, with all his heart, and taught his children the uncompromising love of the Father.

He was preceded in death by his father, BW Allen, who was the Chaplain at Bryce Hospital and Pastor of Highlands Baptist Church in Cullman, his Mother, Cleat Carr Allen…three siblings, Becki, Anna and Bryce.  He is survived by his wife of 37 years; two children, Christina Allen Reeves and Paul David Allen, Daughter-in-Law Melissa Allen, Son-in-Law Kevin Reeves, six grandchildren, Kayla, Samuel, Kristen Hope, Olivia, Tristan and Skyler, and his sister, Cecele Kraus.

At 6’5” and 300 lbs, Philip will be remembered as the gentle giant with a Heart of Gold, a Deep Love of His Heavenly Father and a Compassion for the hurting.

The family will receive friends Sunday, March 26, 2023 from 10:30 am to 11:30 am with a celebration of Philip's life at 12:00 pm at Jefferson Memorial Funeral Home in Trussville.  Burial will follow at Pintucky Cemetery in Heflin, Alabama.
