Allen Smith Jr., age 73, of Greenville, NC, passed away peacefully at Vidant Medical Center in Greenville, NC on Friday, June 26, 2020.
Allen was born and raised in Martin County, Robersonville, NC. He was educated at East End School. After graduating from high school, he left for New York City. He worked the majority of his life in Security and Investigations.
Allen was cherished by family, friends, and all who met him. Although he never married, was the Casanova of his day. His relationships involved women of all sizes, ages, nationalities, and statuses. Even while in rehab, the nursing staff argued over who would take care of him in any given day! One nurse, 40 years younger, actually wanted him to move in with her once he was released from the facility. Allen truly embraced life to the fullest. His warm smile, and sometimes unwanted advice, will truly be missed; especially, by his family.
Upon retiring in 2004, he returned to North Carolina due a lengthy illness and death of his mother.
He is survived by his 3 sisters: Dorothy L Myrick of Irvington, NJ; Geraldine(Allen) S Smith, of East Orange, NJ; Carolyn D Smith of Greenville, NC; One brother: Jesse(Diana) L Smith of Medford, OR; 3 children: Teerance D William's of Williamston, NC; Towanda Whitakers of Birmingham, AL; Allen Avery III of Howard Beach, NY. 5 Grand-children and 5 Great-grandchildren, and a host nieces, nephews, cousins, and other relatives.
