Dr. Allen L. Pelletier
North Augusta, SC—Dr. Allen L. Pelletier, age 63, passed away peacefully surrounded by loved ones on September 7, 2019. Dr. Pelletier was born in Lake Charles, Louisiana and was a proud Louisiana State University School of Medicine graduate. He advanced into a family medicine residency training in Monroe, LA. In the 1990s, Dr. Pelletier served as a medical missionary in Nigeria alongside his family. He had a passion for sharing God's love and healing to all he met. Dr. Pelletier has most recently worked as a family medicine physician and professor at the Medical College of Georgia and retired in June. He is remembered by his colleagues, residents, students, and patients as a dedicated and compassionate teacher and physician. He was active in the community as an elder at First Presbyterian Church of Augusta. He was a Fellow of the American Academy of Family Physicians and an active member of the Christian Medical & Dental Associations and the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine.
Dr. Pelletier was a loving family man and recently celebrated forty years of marriage to his wife Marge. He was the 'Dear Old Dad' to three children and their spouses – Ken (Maritza Gualy) Pelletier, Los Angeles, CA; Lisa (Joel) Beckett, Tucson, AZ; Daniel (Sabrina Mack) Pelletier, Portland, OR. He was the fun 'Paw-paw' to his grandchildren – Penelope, Sebastian, & Nola. He was the big brother to his sister Karen Gerarve and brother Marc Pelletier, both of New Orleans, LA.

Today I joined colleagues at Augusta University in a Memorial Moment of Silence for those members of the community that we lost in the last year. Allen was an exceptional colleague and is much missed. I am grateful to have known him and for the opportunity to have learned from him.

Dr. Pelletier was as kind and humble a man as any I have known, his love for the Lord and his family was evident, as was his dedication to the students of the Medical College of Georgia. I had the pleasure of working with him for several years. He was a special person who will be missed by many. I will be praying for his family during this very difficult time.

I have many wonderful memories of Dr Pelletier. He was a champion to his patients and a leader to his residents in training. He was loved by his family and he treated his wife as a queen. We should all be so lucky. You were loved and you will be missed. Peace be with you.

My dear colleague and one-time neighbor in Enterprise Mill has passed. Allen was totally devoted to his family and shared the best hot pretzels. He was respected by his colleagues and trusted by his charges. His patients loved him. Family Medicine has lost another giant on whose shoulders many have stood.
