Bronny was preceded in death by his parents Claudie and Ola Mae Allen; his brothers Bobby Allen, Lanny Allen and his sister Cathy Allen.

Bronny was born and raised in Albertville, where he lived until he served his country in the Vietnam War.  Before he was drafted into the Army, he married the love of his life Annette Bankston.  They enjoyed a 52-year-old marriage filled with laughter and love. Bronny and Annette welcomed their beautiful daughter Tina in 1974 and their family was complete with the birth of their handsome son Brian in 1979.

After Bronny returned from Vietnam, he worked at Bryant’s Furniture until he started working at Federal Mogul.  He retired from Federal Mogul in 2011.

After he retired, he enjoyed spending time with his family.  He was the financial planner and taught his family how to manage their finances. He always encouraged his grandkids to find a job they loved, because they would never feel like they were working.

His main passion was rebuilding old cars. He loved to get a junk car and restore or rebuild old cars. In his garage right now, he has three beautiful cars that he lovingly rebuilt with his hands and one that he needed to rebuild.

Bronny is survived by his devoted wife Annette; his daughter, Tina Wills and her husband Scott; his son, Brian Allen and his wife Donna; his grandchildren, Lauren Rosson and her husband Chad, Gavin Allen, Kerigan Wills and her fiancé Alexander Bradley, Maggie Allen, Mallory Wills, Jonathan Wills, Dillan Blitchington, Cheyenne Helms and Andrew Helms; and his brothers, Billy Allen and his wife Betty, Ben Allen and his wife Bonnie.
