His name was Allen Gulley and he was a good man. He will be missed. RIP Buddy. Save me a spot. Love ya


He was the one who got tboned, not the other guy.
Why else would he only have minor injuries ??
Allen had just left his home, got on lassie black and was swinging by a friend’s house , then had 2 pick another up from work.
But hey. Y not blame the dead guy right , less paper work..



I totally agree. Exactly blame Allen. Thats bullshit. And Allen knew that area like the back of his hand … he would have stopped… God I miss Allen sooooo bad I wanna hear his voice. .. I think they got it all wrong. I live u Allen n I’m sorry u aren’t with us anymore…

Allen Gulley was from Arkansas originally him and his 2 brothers moved here years ago. Allen was and will be forever one of my best friends. Allen lived with me several different times over the past 13 plus years. He was one of the biggest hearted people I have ever known. He knew everyone or so it seamed. I can say this for 100% in all the years No One has ever said one thing bad about him. He was that great of a man. Allen didn’t have one person that disliked him. Allen loved to shoot pool and very rarely ever lost. He would help just about anyone he knew weather it was paying a bill or buying groceries or giving them gas money if Allen could help he would. My life will truly not be the same without my friend. There are many hearts that are broken because you were loved by so many. I miss you brother and I love you. Thanks for always being there anytime I ever needed you.
RIP Millard Allen Gulley the best person I have ever known.
