Brodie Holt Allen, passed away May 4, 2022 after fighting cancer for 2 years.
He was born May 21, 1946 to Clyde and Hazel (Crabtree) Allen, both deceased.
Raised on a tobacco farm, he embraced the value of hard work and carried that work ethic in his job at Wicker Trucking until his retirement. Brodie had the kindest, sweetest soul and was the best example of humanity. He was completely devoted to those he loved and never failed to answer a call for help from anyone. He always put others first. He enjoyed spoiling his precious dog Buffy who was his anchor and loyal sidekick. He loved feeding his birds, mowing his yard and watching his Tarheels and Yankees play ball.
Brodie is survived by his loving daughter Teresa Welch, son in law Shawn Welch
Grandchildren Lynn Mitchell and Zack Welch and great granddaughter Kaylynn Mitchell brothers: J.W. Allen (Chippy) Donald Allen (Margaret) Lonnie Allen and sister Marie Fholer (Chris); many special nieces and nephews and cousins.
