I have known Allen for many years. I am so sadden to hear of his passing. He was a dear friend of mine and my late husband Vardell Hanniford. He would come and visit for hours and we would have the most wonderful talks. I will miss his laughter and kindness and his many stories. My sympathy for his family at this time.

I am a friend of Mr. Barrineau's daughter Suzanne. I met him once when he was visiting her in Greenville South Carolina. She brought him into the store to meet all her co workers. Over the years I knew her , she would tell stories of his , let's just say , adventures.He didn't like much sitting around doin nothing and I heard that he certainly wasn't staying put at the retirement home. Very independent even if it drove Suzanne and her sister crazy .He certainly raised Suzanne to be a very indeed ant and feisty one also.I am sure he will be missed and all of his shinanigans too.

Mr. Allen was my inspiration. If not for this wonderful man,I would not have made it through USAF Basic training. His kindness along with his stories and laughs were a band aid to this scared, nervous teenager. Later in life when he would visit he would always share how proud he was of me. He was my stepping stone to a new world I would never have experienced without his knowledge and perseverance that I don't give up. I still have the gift he gave me when I left for Texas. Fly high Mr Allen. You were already an Angel and now you have your true wings. Prayers for his family.

I knew Mr Barrineau from SAFE. I always helped him with his banking while I was there. He was a special person and I enjoyed getting to know him!! He had so many stories and was a very smart person. He had much love for his family and grandson. My prayers are with you all during this time of loss.

Allen Barrineau was my big brother. I always enjoyed my visits and his visits even though infrequent before his retirement, and my retirement a few years later. As years went b, the circumstances of distance and and other issues seem to cause us to drift apart. I deeply regret that my efforts in that regard was very poor. I loved him. I will miss him far more than words can explain. My deepest sympathy and sincerest condolences to his family and many friends in Sumter and elsewhere. Laus Deo (Praise be to God.) David A. Barrineau, San Antonio, Texas.
