Allen was born June 25, 1928, in Stillwater, OK and was the son of Dr. Walter A. and Florine M.

At age 16, he worked on the Santa Fe Railroad during WWII as a brakeman, and after college was commissioned a lieutenant in the U.S Army where he served with distinction in Korea and later in Japan after receiving a wound. Allen and Betty moved to Houston in 1956 with two children, a station wagon, and $100 and started a successful sign business and raised a family, eventually settling into Cherryhurst neighborhood, Montrose in 1967.  He is survived by two sons, Michael K. Grady, Patrick A. Grady (and wife Rohati) of Kingwood, TX, daughter Sydney Moen (and husband Robert), and by seven grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
