Obituary for John Q Allen

Mr. John Quincy Allen of Fairfax Va departed this life on May 24,2019 peacefully at Regency Care of Arlington Nursing and Rehabilitation center. He was born November 19,1959 to late John Quincy Allen and Dorthy Mae Allen at Alexandria Hospital located in Alexandria Va. John received his education from Fairfax County Public Schools.

He was an extremely hard worker traveling all over the East Coast and Midwest as an owner operator in the trucking field. Always accompanied by Marsha Wardlaw, daughter Kennedy Wardlaw and son Orlando Jones. While on the road, his favorite food place to stop at was Long John Silvers. When home, he cooked whiting fish every chance he got. His favorite snacks were barbecue chips and a cold mountain dew. He also liked cheeseburgers and fries.

John was a family man. He loved to laugh, make jokes and spend time with his family and friends. His nickname to his friends was “ Q-ball” He was a die hard Redskins fan that’s for sure! His favorite place to enjoy his time off was an amusement park called Kings dominion.

Not only was he an amazing person, he was the greatest father, son, and husband. If John had nothing he had a good heart. He never left anyone behind.

He is survived by his lovely mother: Dorthy Mae Allen, one beautiful daughter: Kennedy Jonae Wardlaw, and two strong sons: Orlando Andre Jones and John Quincy Allen Jr. With an honorable mention to Ms.Porcia Wardlaw. This is a young lady who John took as his own from the moment he met her at the age of 5.

John is someone who will be greatly missed and who will forever live in our hearts.
