David Emory Allen

Jul 19, 2016 (date of funeral)
David Emory Allen, beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother and life-long Yazooan entered eternal life peacefully in his sleep on Saturday, July 16, 2016 at St. Dominic Hospital in Jackson, MS at the age of 61.
David was born on July 22, 1954 in Yazoo City at Kings Daughter’s hospital and was a lifelong resident and booster of the town he loved. He attended the Main Street School, Yazoo High, and Mississippi College. His favorite school was the school of life. He was self-taught in so many things. David possessed a seemingly insatiable appetite for life. He lived to make new friends (which he did everywhere he went), hear new and old stories and most of all, to make people laugh.
At an early age he was bitten by the artistic bug and played guitar for several years in bands. He possessed a natural musical talent--he could hear a tune once and play it back to you by ear. Later he settled on his true passion for photography, which he had picked up at a very young age. His photos were featured regularly in the Clarion Ledger, where he worked, and Yazoo Herald. David also worked for several years as the official Photographer for Governor Cliff Finch, traveling around the country with him. He also really enjoyed his time working for WAPT Channel 16 as a videographer.
Though David leaves a big hole in the hearts of those who knew and loved him, these holes will be filled with the joyous laughter and memories of those lucky enough to have spent time with this fun-loving, cool, resourceful, caring, charismatic, friendly, funny, and one-of-a-kind original guy!
He was preceded in death by his father Charles W. Allen Sr., his mother Mary Belle McCormick Allen, whom he completely adored, and his brother Charles W. Allen, Jr.
He is survived by his wife (to whom he was hopelessly devoted) Kathy Allen, daughters Bella Marie Allen, her husband Brian Farrelly of New York, NY, Emily Allen Chisholm and her husband Chad Chisholm of Clemson, SC, brother Robert Allen of Hickory, NC, sisters Imogene Erickson of Yazoo City, Frances Barbour of Yazoo City, Barbara Swayze of Benton, MS and Olivia Bowman of Bentonia, MS.
He’s also survived by his two precious grandchildren (Gracie and Lucy Chisholm), who both were so special to him and whose photos he would share with anyone and everyone.
Visitation will be this Tuesday, July 19th at 12:30pm. First Presbyterian Church 231 N. Washington St. Yazoo City, MS. Funeral will be at 2PM. Rev. Charles Wingard will officiate. He will be interred at Glenwood Cemetery in Yazoo City, next to his mother. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to American Cancer Society and the National Autism Society of America. In lieu of condolences, please express your love to those around you. Cherish your family and friends. Call that friend you’ve been meaning to call. Go by that relative’s house that you haven’t seen in a while. David would want everyone to spread cheer and happiness, as he always did when he was around. The family would like to thank everyone for the amazing outpouring of support!
