Allen Dean Pannell, Sr., age 56, of Austin passed away on Sunday, January 29, 2012. He was born on July 29, 1955, also in Austin. He was a beloved father, brother, and friend to many. He will be dearly missed.
Allen loved the outdoors and spent many mornings walking local creeks with his dog Bud. He loved fishing, hunting, spending time at the coast, and collecting knives and guns. He shared many of these interests with his family and friends and left us with many great stories and memories. He spent countless days hunting and fishing with his son and passing on his love of the outdoors.
Allen previously worked for the House of Representatives at the State Capitol where he met many wonderful and interesting friends. He continued to work as a state employee with the Department of Aging and Disability Services until his death and will leave many friends behind there also. Allen was also an accomplished carpenter having built many houses and worked on the preservation of the State Capitol.
Allen leaves behind many great friends who have shown their love for him through their care and sadness in his passing. The family would like to acknowledge them and express their gratitude.
He was preceded in death by his father Charles Pannell, his mother Dorothy Kutalek, and step-father Jim Kutalek. He is survived by his son Allen Pannell, Jr. and his wife Scottye, his ex-wife Cindy Evans (Charles), his two brothers, Dudley Pannell (Susan) and Guy Pannell (Diana), two step-siblings, Jeff Kutalek (Sally) and Elizabeth Fulton (Robert), and his beloved dog and friend, Bud.
Visitation and memorial services will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday, February 3, 2012, at Weed-Corley-Fish, 3125 North Lamar Blvd.
