Allen Flippin

March 28, 1964 - February 4, 2024

Dwight “Allen” Flippin, 59, of Claudville, VA, passed away unexpectedly on February 4, 2024. Allen was born on March 28, 1964, the youngest of four children, to the late Robert Clyde and Beulah “Boots” Allen Flippin. Allen grew up in the close community of Asbury, NC, where he was blessed to be surrounded and loved by his aunts, uncles, and lots of cousins. He worked alongside his parents and siblings on their farm.

Allen enjoyed hunting, fishing, and helping cook ham and eggs for the 4th of July Breakfast Celebration, and roasting hotdogs by The Dan River. Sun Drop and ketchup were at every gathering because they were his favorites! He was known for being generous with the bounty of his garden and would often share vegetables and canned goods with his neighbors, friends, and family.

Allen graduated from North Stokes High School and attended Surry Community College, where he was certified as a professional welder. He worked in this field for many years and he is currently employed by Stuart Concrete.

He was preceded in death by his parents and oldest brother, Robert Earl Flippin. He is survived by his brother, Gary (Phyllis) Flippin; and his “Sis,” Sharon (Larry) Stone. Allen was “Papa” to Gavin, had many special nieces and nephews, and had a faithful friend, Sam. He was dearly loved by all of us and his Savior, who was with him all the way. We will miss you “Little Bro.” Allen recently sent this encouraging text message to a family member saying, “Life isn’t easy, but God is always there.”

A memorial service will be held at Asbury Pentecostal Holiness Church in Westfield, NC, on Sunday, February 11th, at 3:00 pm. The family will receive friends from 2:00 pm until 3:00 pm at the church.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Asbury PHC Cemetery Fund, c/o Fay Williams, 1386 Flippin Road, Mount Airy, NC 27030.
