WILMINGTON — Allen Patrick Flood died Wednesday, March 8, 2017, at his home in Wilmington, N.C., at the age of 31, after a protracted battle with cancer. He leaves behind his loving wife, Jennifer Flood, and their two precious little boys, Cole and Mason.
Allen was born April 9, 1985, in Hamlet, N.C. He graduated from Richmond Senior High School in 2003. Allen was athletically gifted and used his God-given talents to play baseball in high school and throughout his college career. He proudly pitched for the UNCW Seahawks from 2003 to 2008 and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology.
Allen worked as a financial service officer for State Employee’s Credit Union for over seven years. He loved his boys, his wife, his ‘momma,’ his family, laughing with his friends, traveling, good food, sports — especially UNC basketball, and most importantly, God.
Allen is survived by his wife and children; grandfather, Charles Hendricks; grandmother, Helen Hornaday; parents, Robert and Terry Flood; brothers, Steven King, Philip King, and his wife, Gina King; niece, Kylie King; nephew, Tyler King; brother-in-law, Brant Pollard, and his wife, Cameron Pollard; and niece, Campbell Pollard.
He was preceded in death by his grandfather, Ernest Hornaday; and his grandmother, Norma Dean Hendricks.
Allen requested to be cremated. Visitation will be held from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Monday, March 13, at Wilmington Funeral Chapel with a service following at 2:30 pm.
The family would like to thank all of the amazing doctors, nurses and staff at Wake Forest Baptist Hospital and the Lower Cape Fear Hospice Center for the compassionate care that they gave to Allen during this difficult journey.
In lieu of flowers, gifts in his memory may be sent to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Association, 401 Harrison Oakes Blvd., Suite 200, Cary, NC 27513.
