Robert Spencer Allen, Jr.

Funeral services for Mr. Robert Spencer Allen Jr. (Rob), age 43 of Marion, will be held on Tuesday, August 30, 2005 at the First Baptist Church of Marion with the Rev. Bubba Hoggatt officiating. Burial will follow at the Roark Cemetery in Marion under the direction of Farrar Funeral Home of Farmerville.

Rob was born on December 7, 1961 in Farmerville and went home to be with the Lord on August 26, 2005. Rob accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior when he was a young teenager. He graduated from East Union Academy in 1980 and received his business degree from ULM. For seven years, he lived in Hawaii after which he returned to Marion. Rob was a kind-hearted, generous spirit who always put the needs of others before his own. His sweet soul touched so many during his short stay here. Rob’s love of animals was evident by all of the pets he kept. He never met an animal that he thought didn’t deserve a home. Rob was always fond of a quiet exit, but his absence was immediately sensed when he would leave our family gatherings. We will always feel his absence and look forward to the time when we will meet with him again.

Rob was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, John Lee and Jamie Turnage, paternal grandparents Tyra and Ruth Allen, and brother-in-law Gary Hensarling.

He is survived by his parents Spence and Jane Allen of Marion, sisters Kathy Hensarling, Karen and Carl Lemoine and Laurie and Bubba Ellis all of Marion; nephews Robert and Jacob Lemoine, Billy and Aliscia Lemoine, Chris and Josh Ellis; nieces Krystal, Rebeckah, and Emily Hensarling, Kassie and Aaron Booker, Bethany Ellis, and one great-niece on the way, Zoe, all of Marion, as well as many aunts, uncles, and numerous cousins and extended family. He is also survived by his dear friend Tamara Perry and his everyday sidekick “Baby Girl”.

Pallbearers will be Tommy Andrews, Buzz Baker, Kerry Cable, Ben Geoghagan, Jeffrey Kirkland, and Tommy Garner.

Visitation will be at the Farrar Funeral Home Monday, August 29 from 5:00-8:00 PM.
In lieu of flowers, please send memorials to the Humane Society.
