Virgil Ray ‘Bud' Allen was born in Yeager, Oklahoma on August 13, 1940, the son of Virgil Jeffrey Allen & Stella Marie (Hanks) Allen. He was brought up and attended schools in the Yeager community. He served his country in the U.S. Army National Guard. On May 25, 1964, he married Christine Robison at the First Baptist Church in Dustin, Oklahoma. He worked in the oilfield for many years, and then worked for more than twenty years on the Rippee Ranch, retiring in 2009. Bud's favorite things were coon hunting, watching OU football, and raising his chickens. More than anything, he loved spending quality time with his grandchildren and great grandchildren.
