I was so sad to hear of Allen’s passing. He was a joy to work with in Physical Therapy and always worked hard. I thoroughly enjoyed talking to him and sharing life stories and keeping him up to date on current events. We shared similar feelings regarding the world today and he often made me feel better despite the terrible state of affairs. The world lost an incredible human being and I am honored to have known him and called him a friend.

I had an opportunity to work with Allen at the NC General Assembly. He was a great listener, problem solver and advisor. I appreciate his service to our State.

Horace, I'm so upset regarding Allen 's passing. Haven't seen him in years but he is not easy to forget. Met him at VR and worked with him at SEANC for several years. My heartfelt sympathy to you.

I am sad to learn that Allen Rogers has passed. I met him while he worked at the North Carolina General Assembly. He was always so helpful to those who needed it. Always wore a smile. He will be missed by so many of us who knew and worked with him over the years and remained friends after he left the General Assembly. Rest in Peace, Allen. You were a great friend.

I was saddened to hear that Allen died. He was definitely one of the good guys. I met him when I was working at the Board of Education and the Department of Community Colleges. He was so helpful and really made dealing with a personnel department easier.

Smart, friendly, always willing to help out and handsome too. These words describe Allen to a "T". I am lucky to have known him.

My thoughts and prayers are with his family now. Heaven just got a good guy.

Allen was a friend, a gentleman,
an immaculate dresser, a professional in the highest sense of the word, and an athlete..

All of our lives are enriched by having known him.

I am so sorry to hear of Allen's passing. He was the most pleasant person and always a friendly ear with sound advice. I learned so much from Allen over the years as our paths crossed through the many departments in state government. I will always remember Allen's endless level of energy. We once ran in a 5K and he was good at that too. I think of Allen and can't help but smile. My regards to his family and the many friends, several of whom I know on these postings, as we ALL adjust to this loss. Rest in peace, my friend.

My sincere condolences are offered today along with a word about Allen. I worked with Allen at the North Carolina General Assembly. He was a giant in the Human Resources profession when he arrived and left us as a friend to all. Allen's encouragement made my day brighter and helped me understand my job better. So glad to have known him.
