RIP, Mr. Allen…

It took some time, to figure out exactly how I would honor news of the passing of Dwayne Douglas Allen. Doug hired me for my first job while in college, which also turned out to be my first job in Sales. This was at a time when I had no idea that I could sell, and had no idea it could [or would] turn into a lifelong career…my lifelong career. It is the same career I write in depth about here at MoM[S]; a career I dearly love. Doug saw something in me then, believed in me, and then we kept in touch from that day on.

Dwayne Douglas Allen was my boss first, then a mentor, an advisor, and then eventually until his passing, a lifelong friend. The many postcards, letters & other memorabilia from him are items that I keep to this day, and will value forever. We shed a tear at your passing, Doug, and will grieve for some days to come as we think of you. But we will always remember the countless chats, visits & laughs we had over many years. God Bless, and Rest in Peace, my old friend.

  1. Condolences on reading about Doug’s passing. I surely did know of his meaning and influence in you at the time when you were in the just beginning stages of selling ad space for The Gator at SF. Great sympathies…..Dad
