Allen Gentry Brandon was born August 11, 1947 to the late Meredith Buford, Jr. and Annie Louise Crawley in Nashville, Tennessee.  He departed this life on December 17, 2015.  He was baptized into Christ on August 30, 1998 at the Bird Street Church of Christ in Shelbyville, Tennessee and was a faithful and involved servant until his health failed him.

Allen was married to Janice for 38 years and they have three children.

He was educated in the Davidson County School System.  He received his GED in the military where he served in the US Army.  As a civilian, he was employed in manufacturing as a machine operator.  He worked at MTSU as a supervisor in Environmental Management.  He retired from Jostens due to health issues.  He took pride in his work and was meticulous about his appearance.  He loved clothes and would prepare a week in advance for next Sunday.  He loved his physical and spiritual families.  He liked to advise others in truthfulness according to his lifes experiences and God’s word.

Allen was preceded in death by his parents.

He leaves to cherish his memories, loving wife, Janice Brandon; daughter, Leanetta T. Brandon; sons, Joseph G. Brandon, Anthony T. Brandon and Torrey (Nicole) Smith; grandchildren, Laneà, Kiara, Sydney, Chase, LeAndre, Toriana and Tatum.

No matter how he felt with each dawning day, he would say, “I am blessed.”
