Allen Craig Brown passed away on February 3, 2024 at Mt Carmel St Anns Hospital in Westerville, OH. He was born June 9, 1955, in Weirton, WVA. Allens legacy will be remembered with love and cherished forever.

Allen graduating from Weir High, he worked in Weirton Steel, for a few years.

In May 1977 Allen married Amelia Amy Sims, whom he lovingly referred to as “Jane”. He had 2 sons, Anson and Andrew. He joined the United State Army in 1982 and served 11 years. He had some memorable and eventful years in the military like becoming a tanker and serving in Operation Desert Storm. He would light up when discussing the shooting competitions he took part in and the life long friendships he made while being stationed in Frieburg Germany.

We relocated to Columbus, OH to start our civilian life. Allen worked at Honda of America for 22 years, retiring in 2015. His love for cars made Honda a great career for him. He was well liked and respected and enjoyed his time there until retirement.

After retirement, Allen found time for his first love, cameras and camera equipment. He went nowhere without his camera. He earned quite the reputation as terrific sports photographer taking pictures of many different sports from the highschool to the little league level. The kids would get so excited seeing his high quality pictures capturing them in action. His favorite pastime was going to Columbus Metro Parks, to take pictures of and enjoy the beautiful scenery. He could spend hours there enjoying nature and doing what he loved. He always looked forward to getting home and critiquing his photos on the computer. He has an amazing collection of waterfalls to go along with a large assortment of birds, and flowers.

Allen also enjoyed summer concerts in the park, a nice drive on a beautiful day and listening to his Jazz. He also enjoyed a good British movie which we could always find on PBS.His quiet time was working on his cars, going to car shows, or watching cars shows on TV.

Allen was a strong, courageous man, who lived and loved life his way. Allen will be dearly missed by his wife, Jane of 46 years, his son, Anson, his brothers, Kenneth Brown, Gerald Williams, Darryl Williams and Jonathan Curenton. His sisters, Monique Curenton-Manuel and Temica Curenton-Lloyd, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

As we gather to celebrate Allen’s remarkable journey, let us remember his infectious smile and laughter. His unwavering strength and courage. May his zest for life inspire us to embrace every moment and cherish the memories we hold dear.
