Brian Dean Allen

June 27, 1975July 1, 2013

Brian Dean Allen, born June 27, 1975, in Killeen, Texas died July 1, 2013, at his home in Bertram, Texas. He was 38 years old.

He is survived by his step- sons Jacob and Hunter Allen of Bertram, father Rickie Allen and wife Carol of Bertram, mother Mollie Bersch and husband Thomas of Copperas Cove, brother Kevin Allen and wife Naomi and their daughter Kaylee of China Spring, grandfather William D Allen of Topsey, grandmother Cecilia (Heidi) Rhymer of Copperas Cove, aunt Tonia Kirkham of Copperas Cove and cousins James Kirkham and Lari Kell. Brian was preceded in death by grandmother Wanda Allen of Topsey and grandfather Carl Rhymer Sr. of Copperas Cove.

Brian grew up in Copperas Cove and after graduating from CCHS moved to the DFW area to work for the phone company MCI. He was transferred to the Austin area and continued to work until he was laid off when the company collapsed. Soon afterwards he realized his dream of starting his own business in the metal building construction business and founded Metalworkz Construction from scratch. His strong work ethic, honesty, and commitment made his business flourish and he became a very well-known and prominent businessman in Central Texas.

Brian was an avid game hunter and fisherman but his most enjoyed pleasure was to be with his friends and family. His sense of humor was his trademark as well as the ability to be an embellished story teller. Brian was a very generous and kind- hearted man and would help anyone in need. He could be seen driving from Austin to Dallas and everywhere in between in his big red truck with his sidekick Ranger, a Labrador retriever, by his side.

Brian’s faith in the Lord was very strong and one of his greatest rewards was building the Hill Country Fellowship Church in Burnet of which he was a member. It is a vision of beauty and he was so grateful for the opportunity to serve his God in this manner.

Visitation will be held Sunday, July 7, 2013, from 5 to 7 P.M. at Clements-Wilcox Funeral Home in Burnet. The funeral service will be held Monday, July 8 at 10 A.M. at Hill Country Fellowship Church officiated by Rodney McGee. Those named as pallbearers were Jamey Dilley, Gary Friedel, Bill Kelly, Dan Honig, Dillon Ferguson, Dallas Ferguson, and Gary Holland. Condolences may be offered to For memorial contribution designations please call Clements-Wilcox Funeral Home 512-756-2222.

Brian Allen was the best friend anyone could have had. I only knew him for a couple years, but he was a great friend. He was always there to help even if you didn't ask for it. My heart is heavy with this news. I'm so lucky to have known such a great person. Taken too soon. I hope to make it up there to walk those streets of gold with you some day brother. I love you and will always miss you.

To the Family,

I just learned about Brain today. I had a opportuity to speak with him a few things in the past year. In fact we were planning a lunch meeting. I am so sorry for your loss. He was such a nice young man and from the pictures I just viewed I can tell he had a wonderful family who loved him very much.
