Joe Allen

July 1, 1956 — November 25, 2020

Joe Glen Allen was born on July 1, 1956 and was the first born son of Kermit and Lee Florence Allen in Montgomery, La. He left his earthly home on November 25, 2020, and he is now in his heavenly home with Jesus, his family, and friends who have gone before him. Those left behind to cherish his memory are his wife, Genevieve, his chosen children, Gary Michael Cameron and his wife Larissa, Jason Edward Cameron and his wife Holly; his beloved favorite granddaughter, Macie Lanae Cameron; his grandsons, Madden Edward Cameron and Callen Samuel Cameron; his sister, Marcia Allen Fletcher and husband Dan; his brother, Bruce Allen and his wife Annette; brother in law, William Fowler and wife Charlene and a special sister in law and friend, Nona Gillis Fowler; as well as a host of nieces and nephews and his cousins who dearly loved him . He was preceded in death by his parents; his beloved sister, Sandra Sue Allen; a brother in law Samuel Marvin Fowler; and a host of cousins whom he dearly loved. Joe attended school in his early years in Iberville Parish then attended high school at Southwood in Shreveport and his final year at Montgomery High School where he graduated in 1974. He briefly attended N.S.U. where he jokingly said he majored in bowling. He decided to pursue a career as an industrial electrician after working a brief stent at the Grey Hound Bus Station in Baton Rouge. He went on to become a licensed certified industrial electrician where he worked from coast to coast and even a short period in telecommunications for Marconi Inc. Joe finished his electrical career at I.P. Paper mill in Mansfield, La working for several contractors finishing up with Zachry, where Joe found both a work family and life time friends. When asked what he did at the "MILL" He would say I am an illumination technician, which meant I change a lot of light bulbs. Joe was an avid reader and loved to collect and shoot handguns until a brain fungal mass took his vision. What cancer could never take from Joe Allen was it never took his cognition, his mentation, his love and faith in God, and his love of his family and friends. At the end of Joe's life his grandchildren were his biggest joy. Our family has been blessed because we were all loved by Joe Joe. His smile, quick wit, and sense of humor will forever be in our hearts. Rest in peace Joe Joe until we meet again, G.
