He was united in marriage to Rev. “Prophetess” Andrea Eubanks (Ridley) on January 31, 1965. They were blessed with two children: Allen P. Ridley III and Arlesia (James) Ridley, God Daughter Deborah (Leonard) Willis.

Allen was educated in the Nashville City School System and graduated from Cameron High School in 1962. He later finished his education while serving in the United States Army for over 27 years.

During his time in the military, Allen served three separate tours of Vietnam. While being stationed at Ft. Campbell, KY, Allen was an Air Assault School Commander. He also served in Ft. Sherman, Panama as the JOTC.
