He later went on to work at a cemetery in Houston, TX, a scrapyard and as a janitor in Pensacola, FL. In 1985, Allen met the love of his life, Joyce LaCross. They dated, fell in love, and have been together ever since. Allen had the gift of gab, he loved telling jokes, traveling with Joyce, hunting, fishing, and the occasional ice cold beer.
