My beloved husband Allen was a Tallahassee High School football star, Retired Army Paratrooper, Ranger, Veteran and community volunteer. Allen’s life journey reflected his leadership abilities and outstanding discipline in all that he accomplished. His community honored him as the true leader he was and asked him to lead the Veteran’s Day Parade as Grand Marshal, it drew thousands of people. His family and friends also came together for an Allen Beal 5K memorial in his hometown, Tallahassee, Florida. Allen faced pancreatic cancer with dignity and fought his battle with strength and grace until the end. We lost him to this disease in 2012.
I live for the cause of raising awareness with our Allen’s Army 5K and I continue to honor my beloved Allen’s request so that one day with early detection and ultimately finding a cure it will help save someone’s life.
In Loving Memory of my beloved husband Allen Beal, 1SG US Army,( Ret.) and step-father of T. Kevin Powells.
