Grandaddy... I’ll always be thankful that you chose to love me as your own. We didn’t have much time alone together because you were always on the clock for God. But the time we did have was so meaningful because you never let an opportunity pass to talk to me about Jesus and my salvation. If not for you, I’m not sure that I would have ever been saved. Much less raising my children as Jesus loving, people loving, little humans! I would have never even considered mission work. Even your dedication to simple tasks such as tending your beautiful flowers, cleaning and painting the pool, and making sure to love on the widows and shut ins molded me. (Not to mention you cutting the grass in your suit! 😂) Your heart for the Lord poured out to everyone around you. HVCS and the students/families there will remember you always. Not to mention the many other lives that you touched with scholarships, leadership, and Saturday sermons in the woods. We were so blessed with your long and fruitful life. Give Grammies such a big hug from us and tell her I’ll swim (float) with her soon. ♥️

I have just learned of your loss. From my earliest memories, Mr. Alligood was all things I thought a father and husband should be. He led by example. My sincerest condolences.

Mr. Alligood was the driving force behind the establishment of HVCS. He personally built many of the original furnishings and was the primary financial support. The school has benefitted from his generosity, devotion, and the bright smile he always had for the children.

I didn’t know Mr. Alligood well, but as a former HVCS parent and current HVCS teacher, I have benefitted in so many ways from the legacy he began 40 years ago. Thank you to his family for sharing him with HVCS—we were so lucky to have him for so long.
