Allen Dale Robertson

December 1, 1958 — October 8, 2023

Brentwood

 

Allen is preceded in death by his mother, Geraldine Qualls Robertson; sisters, Cynthia Berry and Angela Robertson; and niece, Courtney Robertson.

Allen is survived by his loving and devoted wife of 45 years, Anita Newman Robertson; his three girls, Virginia (Nicholas) Nicoletta, Jessica (Bobby) Potter, and Melissa (Stephen) Akande, his father, Eugene Robertson; his five grandchildren, Caleb and Shelbye Nicoletta, Lauren, Allison, and Tessa Akande; and numerous other family members who held a special place in his heart.

In high school, Allen was involved in sports as a manager for football, basketball, and baseball which he was rewarded the Boyce Smith Scholarship when he graduated from Springfield High School in 1976. He worked as a Product Quality Control Tech at Nissan North America for 26 years and retired in 2010. He loved sports of all types including golf and bowling which he was in a league while working at Nissan.

Allen has always been a die-hard fan of Tennessee Vols and the Pittsburgh Steelers since he was a teenager.

Allen was a witness to everyone he met because of his outgoing personality, his friendliest smile, and his caring spirit. Allen never met a stranger even when he was in the infusion lab; he always had a positive spirit and would sing to anyone who would listen. In addition to his dedication to his family, Allen was actively involved in his local church with small group bible study on a weekly basis, involved in Fantasy Football with the men’s ministry at Gateway Assembly of God for 20+ years. Allen was also an honorary board member for Living Stone Assembly of God.

The family would like to thank the doctors, nurses, and staff of the Vanderbilt Palliative Care Unit for the care and compassion they showed our loved one in their final days.
