Nathaniel Allen Jr.

To this union six children were born, of which Nathaniel was the second addition.

He was a three-time letterman at Bryan High School. Nathaniel graduated December 1973 and shortly thereafter, joined the United States Army to proudly serve his country. He spent most of his enlisted time in Korea with his last active service of duty at Fort Bliss, where he was honorable discharged.

Nathaniel enjoyed the great outdoors, watching sports, cooking and spending quality time with his family. He found fulfillment in catering and taking on major task. Always ready to lend a hand, whether it meant putting on an apron or picking up a hammer and nails. He was ready to give you his all in order to make your day.

    I met Nathaniel Allen when I was an undergraduate student at Texas A&M University back in the 1980’s. Nathaniel was charming, handsome, and very loving. We fell in love and were engaged to be married. Unfortunately we did not wed but the love for him, his family, and the same for my family remained. Nathaniel could always make me laugh, he was a shoulder to lean on and always a person I could call. He was a true man that one could depend on at all times, always loyal, deticated, and unselfish. I know that God is pleased with his son and may he rest forever with his parents whom he loved so much in the house of the Lord. My heart, and prayers go out to the family during this time of morning but I am just a phone call away. There will always be a place for Nathaniel in my heart and I will surely miss him.
