Mitchell Ferris Allen, III of Raleigh, NC, died Wednesday, August 11, 2010, at UNC Memorial Hospital. Mitchell was born October 30, 1941, in Whiteville, NC, to the late Mitchell F. Allen, Jr. and Mary Anna Sears Allen.
Mitchell was a 1966 graduate of the University of North Carolina in business administration and remained a loyal Tar Heel fan throughout his life. In his youth, he developed a love for the ocean and boating that influenced his professional life, and he will be remembered for that passion which complemented his personal dreams. He was most proud of his children and grandchildren, and his name lives on. He leaves many cherished memories and will be missed by the many that knew him.
Mitchell is survived by his son, Mitchell F. Allen, IV; his daughter, Angela C. Allen; his sister, Mary S. Allen; his grandchildren, Taylor Anne-Marie Allen and Mitchell F. Allen, V; and the mother of his children, Patricia F. Allen. Also surviving are the extended members of the Allen, Sears, White, and Flynn families.
An intimate memorial service for family and friends to honor and celebrate his life will be held at 1 pm on Saturday, August 21, 2010, at the home of his sister in Raleigh, NC.
