I feel so blessed that I got to know him over many years.” Reverend Bill and Marie Bennett Rev.

I know you are sad but you must also be very proud to have been his family and he loved you all dearly. Mary Jones, November 11, 2016 But He is always stopped and talked to me. He was so busy, so many things to do for the kingdom of God but he always stopped and talked to me. I watched him and my dad talk so many times, church issues, school issues, but he always stopped and talked to me. He could lead the service, preach the word, work the alters but he always stopped and talked to me. He would be at summer camp packing the bus, loading up the kids and teenagers, getting the final count but he always stopped and talked to me. He visited Convocation at the college I attended, surrounded by headline speakers, prominent preachers, people of importance but he always stopped and talked to me. The prodigal son, the wayward child and considered unclean by many but he always stopped and talked to me..... Thank you Bro Allgood for always stopping and talking to me...Tim Tim Logan, November 11, 2016 What a man of such strong faith and integrity. So many people around Plano and Collin County knew and respected this fine man and his fine family. Even those who might not have agreed with his beliefs respected and honored him. His strong convictions were evident in his every day life in church or at a hardware store. It was a honor to know him and be raised with his family. God speed Pastor Allgood ! Robert and Pam Blackstock, November 11, 2016 Rev. Allgood was loved by so many! I know there's a celebration in Heaven. God bless all his precious family. Jack and Denice Burnside Webb, November 11, 2016 Goodby for now dear brother. I will see you in the Morning! James Smith, November 11, 2016 One of the finest people ever. Jack Brown, November 11, 2016 Brother Allgood, you will truly be missed. You where such a sweet and loving man. You touched the lives of so many people growing up. Thank you for everything that you did. May you R.I.P, Trisha Rhoades, November 11, 2016 Brother Allgood will be missed by all who knew him. His ministry touched many lives in a positive way. I always enjoyed every minute he and I spent together. Though most of our time was brief, he always encouraged me . He had a wonderful zeal for his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I'll never forget as a young man playing trumpet with his son Larry at some of the C.A. Rallies in the mid 70's. God Bless all the family and thanks for sharing your Dad with all of us.
