Allen Wade Nealy

January 20, 1964 — June 28, 2021

YOUNGSVILLE- Allen Wade Nealy passed away, June 28th, 2021 in Durham, North Carolina.

Allen was born January 20th, 1964 in Durham, NC to Mr. Harold and Carolyn Nealy. Although Allen was born to Mr. Nealy, he emphatically embraced and was very proud to call John Ormand Smith his Dad and deeply cherished their relationship. Allen attended Northern Durham Highschool and spent most of his career as a Skilled Painter. He also earned a degree in Culinary Arts, and was an excellent cook.

Allen had many joys in life, but he was definitely at his happiest outdoors soaking up the sun with a cold beer, with a baited fishing rod while listening to Lynyrd Skynyrd enjoying great conversations. To family and friends, Allen was known for his willingness to give freely of himself and sacrifice whenever a need arose as the eldest. Allen loved with a giant heart and beautiful enduring soul. Allen had a witty sense of humor that could bring on an instant smile and joyous laughter.

Allen was preceded in death by his father Harold Ray Nealy; his beloved mother and rock, Carolyn Marie Smith; oldest brother, Harold Ray Nealy, Jr.; and his Dad, John Ormand Smith.

Allen is survived by his son Justin Nealy Westbrook of Raleigh, NC; his significant other of 35 years, Angela Arnold Turner; sister Katherine and husband Barry Clay of Durham, NC; brother Robert and wife Michelle Nealy of Bunn, NC; sister Theresa and husband Dewayne Ferrell of Youngsville, NC; brother Richard Smith of Sullivan, ME; brother Rodney and wife Angela Smith of Rougemont, NC; sister Sharyn Renee Smith of Durham, NC; brother John and wife Emmy Smith of Henderson, NC; sister Rhonda Michelle Smith of Raleigh, NC; 13 nieces and 9 nephews.

Allen will be greatly missed by all.
