Eugene G. Allbritten

Eugene G. Allbritten, 95, of Plano, Texas, died Sunday, Nov. 6, 2022, at Medical City Heart and Spine Hospital in Dallas, Texas.

He was born Oct. 22, 1927, in Murray, Kentucky, to Rudy Allbritten and Eula Shroat Allbritten.

He was a retired financial services executive and was of Southern Baptist faith. He was a U.S. Army veteran.

Eugene had a beautiful, dimpled smile that was frequently worn…the kind that radiated from within and a boyish twinkle in his eye. He loved a good joke and had a humorous quip about almost everything. He loved his country, southern cooking, politics, business, investing, homegrown tomatoes, onions, homemade ice cream, a good fresh peach, and his savior Jesus Christ. Second only to Jesus, he loved, adored and cherished Bobbie Sue, his dear sweet wife of 72 years. They were like salt and pepper….one complimented the other perfectly. His life was blessed beyond measure, and he enjoyed 95 wonderful years. His family will miss him more than words can express, but we are so thankful to have had the privilege of being witness to his testimony and wonderful example.   

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by two sisters, Charlene and Dorothy; and four brothers, Eddie, James Rudy, Joe and B.C.

Eugene is survived by his wife, Bobbie Sue Orr Allbritten of Plano; one daughter, Am Mohr of Houston, Texas; one son Brad Allbritten and wife Sharon of St. Louis, Missouri; one brother, George Allbritten and wife Amy of California; four grandchildren, Mason, Brooke, Matthew and Cody; eight great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews. 

The funeral service will be at 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 19, 2022, in the chapel of the J.H. Churchill Funeral Home & Cremation Services with Chris Saunders officiating. Visitation will be from 1-2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 19, 2022, at the funeral home.
