Claude Edward Allen Jr.
November 23, 1962 - October 8, 2021
Mr. Claude Edward Allen Jr., 58, of Mt. Pleasant, passed away Friday, Oct. 8, 2021, with his loving wife, Bonnie of 28 years, by his side.
A memorial service will be held Saturday, Oct. 16, at Gethsemane Baptist Church in Concord, officiated by Pastor Bob Tallent. The family will receive friends after the service.
Claude was born Nov. 23, 1962, in Concord, to the late Claude E. Allen Sr. and Colleen June Newton Allen. Claude worked as an auto mechanic, turning a hobby into a job. Claude enjoyed tinkering with his old dune buggy, or any other car with nothing but the sound of the radio down in his shop. He also enjoyed cooking for his family and it cannot be determined if the best was his tacos, the spaghetti or his BBQ pork chops. We are especially grateful that he took the time to teach his children how to cook his squash casserole and many other dishes. He also enjoyed spending time at the river with his wife and friends.
Claude is survived by his wife, Bonnie Allen; children, Candace Tallent and husband, Robert and Christopher Odom and wife, Kaitlin Livingston; grandchildren, Mason, Annie, and Jethro Tallent and Kinsley Odom; brothers, Steve and Scotty; sisters, Shelia, Angela, Claudia, Autumn and Iris; and numerous nieces and nephews.
