Middletown, MD
Carl (Brad) Bradford Allen, 69, of Pensacola, FL died in Boonsboro, MD on Saturday, November 13, 2021.

He was born May 8, 1952 in Oneida, NY, the son of Carl Joseph Allen and Mary Jane Hatch.

He was raised in Marion, OH and attended Marion Catholic High School.

Surviving are his sons C. Jason Allen and his wife Nicole de Carvalho Allen of New York, NY; Ryan Allen and his partner Elizabeth Jones of Boonsboro, MD; his daughter Amy Love of Boonsboro, MD. One sister, Donna Zolkiewski and her husband Dave of Calgary, Alberta, Canada; one brother Leroy Allen of Gastonia, NC; 5 grandsons Joey, Dylan, Noah, Owen and Lucas; 1 granddaughter Aurora; and dear friend Diane Rott of Pensacola Fl.

He was preceded in death by his parents Carl Joseph Allen and Mary Jane Hatch, his sister Beth Kinzler and his grandson Matthew Love.

He had many jobs throughout the years but was most proud of his time working at the company co-founded by his father, Allied Plastics. Later in life, he lived out a dream and opened a pit beef restaurant, "Bud's Beef" in Pensacola, Florida.

Brad would do anything he could for a friend, and he had a lot of them by the end. He lived for making people laugh and for negotiating, often while wearing his signature straw fedora. He is deeply loved and will be sorely missed.

We love you, Dad. We're glad your ride finally came.

Services will be held at a later date.

Donald B. Thompson Funeral Home, Middletown, was in charge of arrangements.
