Jim was a member of the Alumni Council at EKU, alongside now Richmond mayor Robert Blythe. A great example of a true Colonel, volunteering his time in service to others. Sending our condolences and sympathies from the entire EKU family.

I remember Jimmy Allender as a classmate of my sister Carletta Wolfe at Falmouth Ky. High School. Jim and his mom and dad (Butch) were very popular in Falmouth. Jimmy as a photographer and his mom and dad as an operator of a local grocery store, where they were very generous to a lot of people. I was a little younger than Jimmy, but I was close to his Mom and Dad.
