I went to high school with David and he always seemed like such a cool and easy going guy. I'm shocked and oh so sorry for his family.

I do remember David from PHS days. He always made me laugh. He really had a special way about him. Really didn't see, or speak with him post '75 graduation, but memories are strong. God Bless.

Please accept my deepest condolences, David was a fellow Parkway classmate and was loved by all.

I pray that our Lord will provide you strength and guidance during this difficult time of loss.
May HE provide a host of memories abundantly full of great joy!
And help you learn to only mourn the loss of David's presence in your life…
But somehow give you the strength to rejoice in David's presence of our heavenly Father.

The Final Salute

“Brothers in Arms”, Military men and women down through the centuries, have traditionally exchanged “Hand Salutes” as a sign of recognition and as a way to render courtesy and respect one to another.

This “Hand Salute” is the last that we shall render to David Byron Allred our “Brother-in-Arms”. To his family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for David. And to David it is rendered as a symbol of honor and gratitude to thank him for the devoted and selfless service he rendered to his country while serving in the U.S. Air Force. David, we bid you a sad farewell. You will be dearly missed from among our ranks. Be at Ease. Rest in Peace.

On behalf of the 1,341 members of Lowe-McFarlane Post 14 of the American Legion, I extend our sympathies and our condolences to David’s family and loved ones.
