Allen was an Account Manager with Brauer Material Handling for over 20 years. He was a proud veteran having served in U.S. Army 101st Airborne. Allen enjoyed exploring the country on his Harley with the company of close friends. His bucket list got one big checkmark by completing a year-long solo tour of the United States on his bike. He loved his beautiful dog Annabelle; enjoyed playing golf on the annual golf trips with friends and was skilled in restoring and remodeling homes. He will be remembered by many for his “I got a buddy …” stories. Anytime he started a story with “Joe B …” you knew you were in for a treat. His love of others and desire to help anyone in need will be missed by those whose heart he touched and those that didn’t get the opportunity. He will be remembered as the man who placed friendship and helping others above all else. Services will be held Saturday, April 14th at Woodlawn-Roesch-Patton Funeral Home in Nashville, TN. Visitation will be from 3:00 PM – 5:00 PM. Funeral with Military Honors at 5:00 PM in Dignity Hall with a Celebration of Life reception immediately following services.
