Wesley Lloyd Allen passed away on September 6, 2017 at the age of 44, departing from the loving care of his family into the Lord's eternal presence after a courageous battle with cancer. Wes was born on August 15, 1973 in Conroe, Texas and was a graduate of Trinity High School after playing football and baseball. A 1997 alumnus from Sam Houston State University, Wes worked as a teacher and for many years with HEB grocery.

Wesly was a kind and gentle soul with a zest for life that was infectious and lifted up those around him, both emotionally and literally. Anyone he knew that entered his presence was typically treated with the warmest of greetings followed by a bear hug that would lift you off the ground. He was devoted to his family and friends who will all miss him dearly. Witnessing his enthusiasm and vibrant spirit persist through difficult cancer treatment was an inspiration. His Christian faith allowed him to approach his diagnosis with grace, determination and no regrets.

An avid fan, Wes was an encyclopedia of sports. He traveled far and wide to attend high school, college and professional events. Whether it was a volleyball game involving an old friend's daughter or attending a hallowed stadium or arena with his buddies, Wes found the joy that sports are supposed to bring. There was no bigger devotee of the Texas Longhorns and he attended their football, baseball, volleyball and basketball games across the country. The response from his Longhorn family buoyed Wesley's spirits over the last year as platers, former players, coaches and fans expressed their love. We all will treasure the moments when he would burst into a smile while showing you his latest vintage video from an old Southwest Conference classic. With a family full of Longhorns and Aggies he always loved us all and kept the proper perspective on the competition.

Wes is survived by his parents Connie Baca and Toby Allen; sister Debra Cox and husband Dave; grandparents Ferrell and Franceil Reagan and Lloyed and Bell Allen; and many uncles, aunts, nieces and nephews. The family wishes to thank Wes's team at MD Anderson for their care and compassion during his treatment. A visitation will be held from 12:00 to 2:00 at Neal Funeral Home. A celebration of his life is scheduled at 2:00 on September 12 at Neal Funeral Home. Honored to serve as pallbearers are Travis Reagan, Sam Reagan, Johnathan Clark, Allen Cheatham, Shane Shields, and Larry Eatough. Please go online to sign the registry at www.nealsh.com. Donations to honor Wes may be sent to or M. D. Anderson.
