    The best way to remember Henry is by what he loved. He loved his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and he loved his wife Tina. Henry also loved his family - his sons Bruce and Glen and his six grandchildren. It seemed every person that married into the family brought a special twinkle to his eye, especially the women.
    Henry was a joiner. He was a member of many organizations over the years, and he met many of his closest friends this way. Among the organizations that were proud to have Henry as a member were the Jaycees, the Possum Trappers (his ham radio friends), Lake Tawakoni Bass Club, and Texoma Hamarama. Henry and Tina have been members of Vansickle Baptist church since 1991. He was a soloist, a singer with the Glory Singers, and a proud member of the church choir. Basically, he loved to sing. Henry also loved to organize trips with the seniors at church, the "Joy Group", to southern gospel concerts and other fun adventures.
    His first love, and many may not know this, is Alabama football. It was a lifelong love affair.
    Henry will always be remembered as a hard worker. He did everything with great attention to detail, and he thought any job worth doing was worth doing well. Henry spent the bulk of his career at Military Sheet Metal and BB Trammell and Company, Inc. Henry also owned his own ham radio related business, GLA Systems, which brought us his famous Texas Bug Catcher antenna.
    Henry is survived by Tina Allen, his loving wife of 65 years, his sister Imogene Melvin of Jacksonville, Florida, his sons Bruce (Julie) Allen and Glen (Traci) Allen, as well as his six grandchildren: Justin Rollings, Emily (Brandon) Highwood, Christopher (Alexandra) Allen, Shawn (Tesla) Allen, Russell (Lindsey) Allen, and Mason Allen. He was preceded in death by his parents, his brothers Leroy, David, and Monroe, and Sisters Vivian, Jeanette and Tillie.
    In lieu of flowers the family welcomes donations to the music ministry at Vansickle Baptist Church as an expression of sympathy.
