Edward D. Allen

Martinez, GA – Edward "Ed" Dicks Allen entered his eternal home in the presence of His Lord and Savior on Wednesday, June 15, 2022 surrounded by his loving family.

Ed was born in Richmond County, Georgia, and graduated from Richmond Academy in 1965. He was a graduate of the University of Georgia School of Pharmacy in 1971. He was a pharmacist at University Hospital for 35 years until his retirement in 2012. In addition to his pharmaceutical career, Ed was an avid reader and focused on daily Bible study and made this a priority in his life. In addition to reading, he enjoyed playing the guitar, fishing, traveling, mountain adventures, and was an enthusiast of the beauty of art. He was a member of Warren Baptist Church, and member of the Mike Nelson Sunday School Class. Ed exhibited a spirit of gracious hospitality at his home, along with his devoted wife, Joan Hart Allen.
