Murray Allman MURRAY AUGUSTUS ALLMAN, 73, passed away Nov. 26, 2007. There was never a joke Murray Allman had not pulled out of an old hat, or a stranger he would not hesitate to engage in a friendly conversation. Murray was born Sept. 4, 1934, to his now deceased parents, George & Ola Allman. He was raised in Brownwood. Disciplined even as a boy in 1951, Murray became an Eagle Scout, Boy Scouts of America's highest merit honor. Growing up, Murray had a love for music and took that enthusiasm and talent to earn a bachelor's and master's degree in music from Howard Payne University and North Texas State (now the University of North Texas) respectively. Murray worked with devotion as a high school band director, photographic salesman & photographer. He was music director at Ranger High School in Ranger, TX for a short time in 1960. Later in life, he could always be seen camera in hand at family gatherings. He served for years in music ministry at church, playing the horn and singing in the choir. Murray carried a sweetness within him which could only be explained by a love for God and His creation. He is survived by his wife, Patsy Claudette Allman; son Paul Edward and wife, Terry, of Carrollton; son Carl Phillip Allman of Carrollton; his sister, Lina Elizabeth Holland of Brownwood; four grandchildren, Kristin, Michael, David and Hannah. Note: Both his sons are now deceased.
