Art was active in most things musical for as long as I knew him. Prior to entering the ministry himself, he was a very active participant in the choir of First Presbyterian Church. He performed in the chorus for the Houston Symphony group at that time as well. He had little access to choral groups during his service to the Marfa Presbyterian Church and then Drake Memorial Church in Orange. Ten years prior to his death he discovered the Masterwork's Choir, went to tryouts and was accepted by them, receiving his ten-year pin in 2002. His interest in the plight of the seafarer's coming into the Port of Houston was natural, since he was a graduate of Annapolis. He and his influence to so many are sorely missed.
Arthur B. Allen, 72, passed away on Friday, January 10, 2003 in Houston, Texas. Mr. Allen was a dedicated pastor of Faith Presbyterian Church in Pasadena, Tx. He is survived by his loving wife, Maureen Allen; daughters, Lisa and Jennifer Allen and sister Barbara Blunk. A church service will be held on Tuesday, January 14, 2003 at Faith Presbyterian Church, 2301 S. Houston – Pasadena Rd., Pasadena, Tx. At 10:00 A.M. Interment follow at Houston National Cemetery. In lieu of flowers donations may be made in his name to The American Cancer Society.
