L.G. Allen, Jr.


 

 

 

 

L.G. Allen, Jr., 89, of Timpson, Texas, passed away on Friday, March 17, 2017 in Garrison, Texas. He was born on June 13, 1927 in Choudrant, Louisiana to Larcus Green Allen, Sr. and Eva Frazier.

Visitation will precede the service from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM at First Baptist Church. Interment will follow at Woodlawn Cemetery in Timpson, Texas. 
 
LG grew up in Choudrant, Louisiana before moving to Timpson with his family. He was extremely talented and a natural athlete that excelled at all of the activities he participated in while in high school. After graduation, LG entered the military and soon after returning home, married the love of his life, Billie Joy Fitts in 1948. LG devoted a lifetime of service to his community as County Commissioner until retirement. 
 
LG was a very laid back, kind, and compassionate individual. He never met a stranger and made sure to make you feel special if he saw you around town. LG was sure to enjoy himself no matter what he was doing. He was drawn to the outdoors where he spent much of his time fishing, hunting, or playing golf. Baseball was also a favorite pastime of his. 
 
LG was surrounded by a family filled with love. He is survived by his faithful wife of 68 years, Billie Joy; two sons, Ricky Allen and wife, Brenda, and Bradley Allen; one brother, R.S. Allen and wife, Sandra, one sister, Evelyn McLeroy; five grandchildren, Michael Allen, Kyle Allen and wife, Tisha, Jacob Allen, Amy Allen, Katie Norman and husband, Clayton; ten great grandchildren; and dearest family friends, Robin and Duncan Connell.  He is preceded in death by his parents, Larcus Green Allen, Sr. and Eva Frazier and sister Claudine Barrett.
 
The Allen family would like to extend their heartfelt gratitude to the staff at Garrison Nursing Home who so lovingly stood beside and served LG during his stay there until his passing. 
Pallbearers for Mr. Allen’s service are Kyle Allen, Jacob Allen, Bryan Stinnett, Clayton Norman, William Lum Edwards, and Kenny Smith.  The family is being served by Taylor Funeral Home in Timpson, Texas.

Joseph Olenik


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shelby County’s best “walker” Joseph Olenik, age 65 of Joaquin, passed away Thursday, March 2, 2017 in Joaquin as a result of an accident. His pastor, Rev. Paul Silvey stated, “Now he’s walking on streets of gold.”
 
Services will be 2:00 p.m., Sunday, March 12, 2017 at First Baptist Church in Joaquin with Bro. Paul Silvey & Bro. Joseph Rowe officiating, burial will follow at Joaquin Cemetery. Visitation will be Saturday, March 11, 2017 from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. at Mangum Funeral Home.
 
Joseph or “Joey” was born March 14, 1951 in Lake Charles, LA to parents, Edward & Temple Rose (Bazer) Olenik, who precede him in death.
 
A birth accident with forceps left Joey mentally challenged and epileptic.  He attended public schools until the third grade; he then went to state schools and trade schools in Lake Charles, Leesville and Hammond.  He made and sold decorative pillows from state to state for five years with his best friend from Leesville School. Joseph then took a drafting class at age 21 and learned to draw blueprints of houses. This showed more autistic traits. Joseph, along with his mom and younger sister moved to Joaquin in 1970, where his mom’s family lived.  Joseph then moved to Shreveport where he ran his own lawn business for twenty years.  He also bought and paid for his small home. In 1999, brain surgery alleviated most of his seizures and his family convinced him to retire and move back to Joaquin. He had walked all over Shreveport with his lawn mowers, in spite of the seizures and many more adversities. Joseph did not believe in giving up or giving in. He also didn’t believe people should stop exercising~ so he began to walk all over Shelby County. Joseph was ornery to his “bossy” sisters, but he prayed for everyone and read his Bible every night.   His generous and compassionate spirit and sense of humor will be missed by his family and friends. Joseph was a member of First Baptist Church in Joaquin. 
 
A special thanks to his friends, Susie and Nathan and the crew at Subway in Joaquin, and DP and Nick and family at Executive Inn and Suites in Joaquin. They lived out this song to Joseph: “You’ve Got a Friend”.  Eternal gratitude is given to Joyce and Steve Cockrell, Rev. Paul Silvey, Jesse the ambulance driver and all the brave group that helped at the accident Thursday night. The family would not have made it through without each of you.
