Louis W. Allgood

February 15, 1933June 4, 2013

Louis W. Allgood joined his four brothers in Heaven on June 4, 2013 at the age of 80. Born in Sherman, TX, he earned his Bachelor’s degree from North Texas State University. Fun, caring, and much-loved, he and Harriet enjoyed international travel and was proud of visiting all 50 states. Football was his favorite, but Louis enjoyed watching all sports. His involvement in his community started when he helped found the first Rattlesnake Hunt in Sweetwater, Texas. He was involved with the Jaycees, acted as deacon in the First Christian Church, and was a member of Sigma Nu fraternity. Louis helped establish the Meals-on-Wheels program in Grand Prairie, TX, delivering for 13 years in Grand Prairie and the Dallas area. He began the Nolan County Juvenile Probation Office and served his community for 30 years as a social worker in the Texas Department of Human Resources. Most important to Louis was his family. He loved his wife, Harriet, daughters, Janis Allgood, Louise Gray (Ben), and Susan Priddy (Ronald). He was very close to granddaughters Brenda Hudson (Dave), Bethany Flint (Jeff), and Sharon Horne (Ryan). His great-grandkids–four boys and one girl–loved riding with Louis on his wheelchair. Louis’ life will be celebrated at First Presbyterian Church, Austin on Friday, June 7, 2:00 PM. Donations to Meals-on-Wheels in your community would be appreciated.

We were so saddened to hear of Louie's passing. He and I pledged together in the old Chi Sigma Phi, and later as Sigma Nu brothers. Bettie & Louie were high school buddies at Sherman High. Bettie & Louie were just babies in the big city of Howe. They also went to Howe grade school until she left for Sherman in the 4th grade. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Leon (Lee) and Bettie Johns, Bullard, TX.
P.S. Harriet, I was surprised that you all were in Austin. I just assumed that you were still living in the Dallas area. Our address is:
146 Marina Dr.
Bullard, Tx. 75757
Would love to hear from you.

My sympathy to you and your family during this time of grief. I remember fondly my time with Louis in the Sigma Nu house and all the things we did together as brothers. May God grant you peace during this trying time.
