Samuel Allen Strickland, 73, of Anniston Alabama, passed away on Monday, January 15, 2024. Allen, as he was known to family and friends, was born in Chattanooga, TN to Perry David Strickland Sr. and Anne Bishop Strickland. At a young age, Allen's family moved to Trenton, GA and later settled in Rossville, GA following his mother's passing.

In 1968, Allen joined the Marines where he proudly served two enlistments, with most of his service time spent in Japan. While in the Marine Corps, he attained the rank of Corporal and received multiple commendations. 

After completing his military service, Allen returned to Chattanooga where he was employed as an industrial heating and air conditioning technician, and later as a truck driver.

Allen was preceded in death by his parents Perry David Strickland Sr. and Anne Bishop Strickland, as well as his nephew Eric Strickland. He is survived by his sisters Glenda Cargile (Birchwood, TN) and Debra Jones (Ringgold, GA); brothers David Strickland (Chickamauga, GA) and Simon Strickland (Rock Spring, GA); stepdaughter Wendy Craft, along with several nieces and nephews.
