Earl Wayne Allen

December 22, 1956 - January 2, 2021

Earl Wayne Allen of Allen, Texas passed away on January 2, 2021 at the age of 64. He was born on December 22, 1956 to C.G. Allen and Anne (Wilson) Allen McKinney in Dallas, Texas.  He was a beloved brother, father, grandfather, uncle, co-worker, and neighbor. He was a perfectionist that took great pride in whatever he did, and he was a jack of all trades. He was one of the best computer programmers, a patient teacher, a great carpenter/woodworker, all-around maintenance and repair man for anything in the home, and was one of the most organized men you could ever find. On any given day, you could find him planning or preparing some culinary feast for himself, his daughter, and/or his grandkids. He loved creating special recipes for each person and was a master of the grill and smoker.  He made sure his daughter was well-versed in baking, cooking, and basic household repair and was responsible for her knowing her way around Home Depot. He also made sure to take the time to pass on his love of woodworking to his grandson, cooking and baking and fishing to all the grandkids, and even rubbed off his love of grilling and smoking to his son-in-law. He loved watching his Aggies play football almost as much as he loved cheering on his grandsons in martial arts.

He is survived by his daughter, Tausha Krebsbach and son-in-law Brian; grandchildren, Hannah Krebsbach, Brennan Krebsbach, Colton Krebsbach, and Ezekiel Krebsbach all of Frisco, Texas; sister, Denise Allen of Grandview, Texas; sister Sandy Essary of Burleson, Texas; brother, Rick Bolden of Mesquite, Texas; nieces, Michelle McAllum, Shawna Boyett, Alicia Soto, Amanda Thornton, Violet Chastain, and  Amy Vaughn; and numerous other loving family members and friends.

Earl was preceded in death by his parents and brother, Troy Allen, and nephews, Matthew Allen and Dustin Essary.

My co-worker/my friend, For years I missed seeing you in the office and hearing you say "Hey Girl" as we conversed at the snack table. You always had a funny story or kind words that made the work day better. I think we all felt a small heartbreak followed by extreme joy when you told us you're retiring as we accepted as a well deserved path. Connecting on social media allowed me to continue to experience your kindness from a distance and appreciate your ability to bring smiles and laughter to all that knew you. You will be greatly missed Earl Allen. Rest On my friend..... Felicia, January 13, 2021 To the family of Earl Allen: With deepest sympathy, Leroy and I are sorry for your loss. Earl will be missed by us. He was a loving, caring and thoughtful neighbor. He spoke often of his daughter and grand children, he would always say how much he loved them and how proud he was od each of them. We love Earl and we want you to know that we are praying for your family. God bless you and keep you in his care. Leroy and Linda Chappell January 10,2021 Leroy and Linda Chappell, January 10, 2021 I have been Earl's next door neighbor for many years and I'm shocked and saddened by his unexpected passing. We would talk often and always say hello at the mail boxes or when putting working in our yards. He was so proud of the updates he had been doing on his house and would take me to show me his new kitchen. The weekends were the best when I could smell his grill!!! My thoughts and prayers go out to his family at this difficult time and he will be missed by many friends and neighbors alike. Until we meet again....
