Allen Wayne Hampton, Sr., 72, passed away peacefully at home on Saturday February 15, 2020. Allen was a family man who was devoted to his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He proudly served the United States in the U. S. Army as a member of the 173 and 82 Airborne. He loved to fish and be outdoors. Allen loved to take long drives. He had a special place in his heart for his dogs – especially Sassy. He enjoyed all sports and he was definitely a Panthers, UNC-Tar Heels and Atlanta Braves fan. Allen never met a stranger.
