Allen Fine, II of Tennessee; two stepsons, Todd Belleau and Brian Belleau both of Colorado; 19 grandchildren and several beloved great grandchildren; two sisters, Vera Shoffner Miller and Jewell Langley both of Tennessee.
Pastor Fine was a retired 7th Day Adventist Church pastor. He pastored churches in Summersville, Spencer, Ripley, Glenville and Point Pleasant. Also, he did evangelism and seminars throughout the United States. Perhaps, he was best known for his radio program “New Sounds of Inspiration” heard locally on WVRC, Spencer and on other stations throughout the eastern U.S. and Canada.
In his spare time, he enjoyed gardening, training his Huskie pups, reading and studying the Bible extensively. Also, he found great pleasure visiting throughout the area and answering questions about the Bible.
Pastor Fine will be remembered for his great love for the Lord and His truth, his compassion and his unique sense of humor.
A memorial service and celebration of his life will be held at 6:00 p.m. Wednesday, June 13 in the Boulevard 7th Day Adventist Church, 622 Kanawha Blvd., W., Charleston, with Pastor Larry Boggess and Pastor Stewart Pepper officiating. Friends may call at the church one hour prior to the service.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial donations be made to the Boulevard 7th Day Adventist Church to help build up the church school and provide evangelistic outreach programs. Online condolences may be expressed at www.taylorfuneralhomeinc.com
